Did you e-fle your return?  Or were you planning to print and mail it to the IRS?  If you did not e-file, TurboTax does not mail your return for you.  It is up to you to print, sign and mail it to the IRS.  Remember when you mail a return, you need to attach copies of documents such as your W-2, 1099R, etc. to the return.
