If my status says accepted does this mean that IRS is processing refund?

Accepted simply means the government received your e-filed tax return. 

If you're getting a refund, the next step is for the government to approve your refund before they can send your money to you.

Once you've been accepted, start tracking your federal refund on the IRS Where's My Refund site.

If your return was accepted less than 21 days ago, hang in there. It can take anywhere from a few days to 3 weeks to go from acceptance to approval. This timeframe is unrelated to how, where, or when you filed and isn't connected to how quickly you got your refund last year.

 

My return is accepted but still not approved. Is there a problem? Should I be worried?

 

When will I get my IRS tax refund?
