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 (or emailed) 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
State returns have to be mailed to the state.
If you mail a tax return (or a payment) to the IRS, it is a good idea to use a mailing service that will track it like UPS or certified mail so you will know it was received.
I also had a problem with the refund we e filed on 2\19\20 on both state and fed. they said they were accepted and that is it . I checked on the refund several time using the irs.gov web site and the lates thing said it was pending and Now you greedy people are demanding payment or you will take it out of my direct deposit account that is part my account. Now I hope you read this and get off your ass and help not just send demanding emails J.M. [email address removed]
