if you paid all your turbo tax fees with a debit or credit card already, your refund will get direct deposited by the IRS directly to your bank ....you have no intereaction with Santa Barbara.

 

you only have interaction with Santa Barbara is you chose for your fees to be deducted from your refund.

Thanks for the advice. Chose to pay my fees with a credit card this year. Last year, I saw the SBTPG show on my account information with a delay, didn't want that this time.

@teegia18 Paying your fees did not file your tax return.   Did you e-file?

 

Did you e-file?  Did you click a big orange button that said “Transmit my returns now?”

 

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.

 

First, check your e-file status to see if your return was accepted:

If the IRS accepted it, what does it say here?  

https://www.irs.gov/refunds         

  Or does your account say “Ready to Mail?”

 

Note:  If it says “Ready to Mail” or “Printed” that means YOU have to mail it yourself.  TurboTax does not mail your tax return for you.

Thank you for your reply but my question was only over my refund coming from the irs or being filtered through turbo tax bank. Yes, I correctly submitted my taxes months ago and have a ddd of 6/17.

If you paid your fees to TurboTax upfront then you are not involved in any way with SBTPG.   Your refund will come directly from the IRS---when the IRS issues it.   Remember---the date given to you by TurboTax was only an estimate.   The IRS controls when your refund will be issued.  After the IRS issues your refund allow up to five business days for it to post to your account.
