My federal and state taxes have been processed and accepted on March 29 2021 and will be directed deposited. is it really going to take 15 to 21 days?

I checked my status through TurboTax and it said it's on its way ? how can I find a date that it will direct deposited?

I think TT means your filing is on its way to the IRS and State.  First, Accepted means received for processing.  It does not mean Approved, which is a later step.  Usually, the IRS takes about 21 days, but this year many folks have been waiting 6 weeks or more.  (State refund times vary, so check your state's tax website.)

 

The IRS is seriously backlogged due to all the extra stimulus filings, as well as a few million unprocessed 2019 returns left over from the COVID shutdown. See:
