Is there another way I can confirm IRS received my income tax return because whenever I check where my stimulus or refund check it doesn't recognize my SS3

Did you e-file or mail your return?  If you mailed it, the IRS is working through a backlog of millions of mailed returns that piled up in trailers for months, so yours might still be in that pile, and you will not see anything on the refund site until your envelope makes it to the surface.

 

 

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.

 

 

How long ago was your e-file accepted?

Sometimes people get confused by the “summary” given by TurboTax and use the wrong amount for the federal refund.  Make sure you are only using the federal refund amount, and not an amount that combined your federal and state refunds. 

 

Your federal refund amount is on line 20 of your Form 1040

The message I received says that both Federal and NJ state were both accepted.  However, it doesn't say ready to print.  It does allow me to download and print.  Was I supposed to print my return and mail it?

"Looks like you've already e-filed your 2019 tax return.  The IRS has the info they need to quality you for a stimulus payment. "

If you used the IRS non-filer website to register for the stimulus payment and now are trying to e-file a 2019 tax return, see this TurboTax support FAQ for how to proceed - https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/tax-topics/help/stimulus-how-to-file-your-return-after-getting-rej...

I did not use the IRS non-filer website to register for the stimulus payment.  I e-filed my 2019 tax return in April.  I want to confirm that the IRS received my return because I did not print and mail the return.  I was under the impression that my return was filed electronically and I did not have to do that.

If you e-filed your federal tax return using TurboTax you would have received two emails from TurboTax.  The first email when the federal tax return was transmitted.  The second email when the tax return was either accepted or rejected by the IRS.

 

You can also check the status of the federal tax return by signing onto your TurboTax online account, if you used the online editions, the status of the tax return will be displayed - https://myturbotax.intuit.com/

If the status is Accepted then the federal tax return was e-filed and received by the IRS.
