It is November and the status of my refund is "still being processed". Does anyone else have this issue? Would the IRS notify TurboTax if there is a problem?

And by the way, it is not November.  It is still October 2018.

No, the IRS does not provide any feedback at all to TurboTax about your tax return.  Once your return has been accepted, TT is done.  You do not say how long ago your return was accepted.  If it says it is being processed, that means the IRS has it and is working on it.

TurboTax gives you an estimated date for receiving your refund based on a 21 day average from your date of acceptance, but it can take longer. Once your federal return has been accepted by the IRS, only the IRS has any control.

If you chose to have your TurboTax fees deducted from your federal refund, that will take some extra time, while the third party bank handles the refund processing.

I e-filed mine mid-February. Still waiting. Tried tax payer advocacy # multiple times after being transferred and on hold litterally all day, was mysteriously disconnected.

Have you tried this procedure to contact an IRS agent or a Tax Advocate -

 

Call the IRS: 1-800-829-1040 hours 7 AM - 7 PM local time Monday-Friday
When calling the IRS do NOT choose the first option re: "Refund", or it will send you to an automated phone line.
So after first choosing your language, then do NOT choose Option 1 (refund info). Choose option 2 for "personal income tax" instead.
Then press 1 for "form, tax history, or payment".
Then press 3 "for all other questions."
Then press 2 "for all other questions."
- When it asks you to enter your SSN or EIN to access your account information, don't enter anything.
- After it asks twice, you will get another menu.

Press 2 for personal or individual tax questions.
Then press 4 for all other inquiries
It should then transfer you to an agent.
Or you can contact your local IRS office. See this IRS website for local IRS offices - http://www.irs.gov/uac/Contact-Your-Local-IRS-Office-1 or call 1-844-545-5640 to set up an appointment
Or you may want to contact a Taxpayer Advocate in your area. See this IRS website for Taxpayer Advocate in your area and a toll free number - http://www.irs.gov/Advocate/Local-Taxpayer-Advocate
