Just wanted to know how long I have to wait to receive my taxes after they have been accepted

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. 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 20 of your Form 1040) of your federal refund to track your Federal refund:

On the IRS site you are also offered the use of an app called IRS2Go

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 was wondering how long it takes to get the refund, and did the IRS receive my tax info

You can check your e-file status by following the instructions below. This will let you know if your return has been accepted or not.

The IRS expects to issue most refunds in less than 21 days after being accepted, however, that is not always the case as there are multiple issues that can cause a delay while your return is being processed by the IRS. The best way to get an accurate direct deposit date is to use the Where's My Refund tool on the IRS website. 

To track your Federal refund, visit the Where’s My Federal Refund? site here: https://www.irs.gov/refunds. Updates are made daily, usually overnight.

 Note: You will need your social security number, filing status, and refund amount in order to track your refund.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
