Your tax return has been sitting in the TurboTax servers waiting for the IRS to begin taking returns. The IRS does not start processing tax returns until Jan. 28. It will say pending until the IRS pulls your return from the TurboTax servers and either accepts or rejects it. You should get emails from TurboTax about the status a few days after Jan. 28.

The IRS pulled a few returns early to test their system. Your co-worker apparently had one of those test returns. The tax return will not actually get processed until after Jan. 28.

Same issue. Filed same exact date 1/11, but yet someone filed today and got accepted today. This response makes no sense.

The early returns are pulled randomly by the IRS. The date is was filed makes no difference when the IRS is just going in and pulling returns at random. There was one year in the past when early filed returns seemed to get lost and were processed many days later than ones filed on or after the official opening date. Hopefully that won't happen this year.

My IRS  e-file was accepted by 1/18/2019 (I filed 1/4/2019) but my state taxes say pending even though my state accepted exiled returns from yesterday. Why?

Some states won't open to start processing efiled returns until the IRS also officially opens, which is today.  And they may have a backlog at first.

@daquarius123
Put it into what???  Are you referring to the IRS "Where's My Refund?" tool?    That tool will only work AFTER your return has been accepted, and it may take up to 24 hours after it's accepted.   If your return has not been accepted, you shouldn't be using it.

If your Federal return has been accepted, then be sure you are entering only the Federal refund amount, and do not include any state amount.   Look at your return to see what is showing for the Federal refund.
If you filed a Form 1040, the Refund Amount is shown on Line 20a.  Verify you are entering that amount.

If you paid any fees out of your Federal refund, be sure you are using the Federal refund BEFORE the fees are subtracted.    Use the original amount shown on the return.
