What happened?   Did you e-file?   Did you click that big orange button that said "Transmit my returns now?"   Or did you just log out and then are you getting some message that says you "filed?"

If you clicked that button--even by accident--- then you will have to wait for the return to be rejected or accepted.   No one can click that button except the user---so somehow you clicked it.   If the return is rejected you will be able to go back into the return and make corrections.     If it somehow gets accepted then you are going to have to wait until the IRS processes it so that you can amend.  Sorry.

 

 

Right now is it in "pending" if you e-filed it:

 

MY RETURN IS IN PENDING—what does that mean?

 

Did you e-file?  Did you click that big orange button that said “Transmit my returns now?”  If so, your return is now in “pending” on a server.  Do not try to change anything while your return is in pending. If your return is rejected you will be able to make corrections before re-filing.

 

The IRS just began accepting/rejecting 2020 returns on Friday, February 12, 2021.  You need to watch your emails for the acceptance/rejection notice that may take until mid-February or later to arrive.   And watch your spam folder too.   There are a LOT of e-files on servers so it may be several days after the IRS opens before you get an email.  There are so many returns waiting —kind of like trying to put the ocean through a garden hose.  

 

When you e-file your federal return you will receive two emails from TurboTax.  The first one will say that your return was submitted.  The second email will tell you if your federal return was accepted or rejected.  If you e-filed a state return, there will be a third email to tell you if the state accepted or rejected your state return.

 

A state return cannot be accepted until the federal return has been accepted.

@Nrgualda Frustrating as it is----you are among many people who made an inadvertent mistake on your tax return that needs to be fixed.   You will not be "in trouble" as long as you amend to correct the mistake when the Form 1040X becomes available ---they are now saying it will be in late March.   Post back for help amending after your return has been processed by the IRS.
