I haven’t received my Federal refund

If your return was accepted less than 21 days ago, hang in there. It can take anywhere from a few days to 3 weeks to go from acceptance to approval. Even though the IRS issues 9 out of 10 tax refunds within 21 days, it's possible your return may require additional review and take longer to process.

For the most up to date information Where’s My Refund? will give you a personalized date once they approve your refund.  Unfortunately, once your federal return has been accepted by the IRS, TurboTax does not receive any updates from the IRS.

Here is the general timeline of e-filed returns:

Transmission > Acceptance > Processing > Approval > Refund.

Please see the TurboTax FAQ below for additional information:

Why do some refunds take longer than others?
