Did you actually mail the return?  TurboTax does not mail it for you.

It can take approximately 6 weeks to get a Federal tax refund after filing a paper return by mail.

After approximately 4 weeks from mailing, you should see it in this IRS "Where's My Refund" tool where you can monitor it.

Does anything show up in the tool?

I have mailed it myself yes. I will wait after 6 weeks then.

Thank you

If it's been 4 weeks, you should be able to see evidence of it in that tool.   If it has been longer than 4 weeks and not showing, we can tell you how to phone the IRS and speak to a live agent to be sure they got it.
