It has been more than 48 hours with no change in the status of my tax return. I want to confirm it was received.

You should have received an email from TurboTax stating your return was "accepted", meaning your return was successfully sent to the IRS to be processed. Once your return has been accepted (received) by the government, they take over the refund status update duties, since they hold the purse strings. Your status on TurboTax will stay as "accepted".

Once the IRS begins to process your return, it can take up to 21 days to fully process and issue your refund. Many different factors can affect the timing of your refund after they receive your return. Use the following information to follow the status of your return with the IRS.

Once they start processing your return, the Where's My Refund?  tool includes a tracker that displays progress through 3 stages: (1) Return Received, (2) Refund Approved, and (3) Refund Sent. It also provides an actual personalized refund date as soon as the IRS processes your tax return and approves your refund. It doesn't show information about amended returns.

Keep checking the IRS website for status on your refund. They will eventually update your information and show you which stage you are in along with a refund date. Hope this helps!
