I mailed my tax return on Feb. 8th and have not received a confirmation that they have it. Should I be worried?

TurboTax will not know anything about your mailed return, and will continue to show “Ready to Mail” on your account.  TurboTax will not know that you put your tax return in an envelope and took it to a mailbox.  TurboTax does not get updates on mailed returns.  Wait about 4 weeks from when you mail a return and then you can check the status on the IRS site. https://www.irs.gov/refunds

No need to worry. When you file a paper return, the IRS ask that you please allow 4 weeks before checking the status.
