It said my return was accepted on January 20th. It is now may 20th and still haven’t gotten my return yet. Is there anyone in the irs I can talk to to explain?

Just want someone to tell me if I need to do anything else

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.  “21 days”  is not a promise from TurboTax or the IRS. 

 

 

 

First, check your e-file status to see if your return was accepted: 

https://turbotax.intuit.com/tax-tools/efile-status-lookup/

 

Once your federal return has been accepted by the IRS, only the IRS has any control.  TurboTax does not receive any updates from the IRS. Your ONLY source of information about your refund now is the IRS.

 

You need your filing status, your Social Security number and the exact amount  (line 35a of your 2023 Form 1040) of your federal refund to track your Federal refund:

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.

To  call the IRS:IRS:  800-829-1040  hours 7 AM - 7 PM local time Mon-Fri

Listen to each menu before making the selection.

First choose your language. Press 1 for English.

Then do NOT choose the first choice re: "Refund", or it will send you to an automated phone line.

Instead, press 2 for "personal income tax".

Then press 1 for "form, tax history, or payment".  

Then press 3 "for all other questions."

Then press 2 "for all other questions."  It should then transfer you to an agent.

@stef622 In the future----sometimes filing really early in January is a bad idea.  Instead of getting a quick refund, you can end up with your return going under review or with an identity verification request.  The IRS is getting more and more vigilant to prevent identity theft and tax fraud.    They often take a closer look at those early returns, so filing early may give you the opposite result of the early refund you may have hoped for.  It is better to wait a few weeks into the tax filing season.
