I'm in the exact same situation.  It's compounded by the fact that I made over $70K in 2019 and only $30K in 2020.  I'm worried that I won't get the stimulus payment because they'll use my 2019 taxes.  The timer is counting down...

Use this link to check on the status of your refund.  Where's My Refund

 

TurboTax is a Tax preparation tool, so once you prepare and submit your return to IRS, TurboTax is no longer involved.  TurboTax does not issue refunds or know when they are issued.  IRS does not update TurboTax about their processing of your returns. 

 

The IRS issued more than 9 out of 10 refunds to taxpayers in less than 21 days last year. The same results are expected for 2021.

 

You can use the IRS Where’s My Refund? tool (fastest option) or IRS2Go mobile app

Please see the links below for more information on when you will receive your refund:

Thanks for the reply, I understand, but with others who have filed like a week and a half ago and already got their returns, and then me filing around a month ago does this imply Im being audited or something?

There is one thing that is true, not all returns take the same time to process at IRS.

 

It may be that there are some topics on returns that IRS is looking at more carefully and your return might have it, or your return may have been received in a huge group of returns to be processed and IRS is struggling to catch up.  Since the return has been accepted, then just take advantage of using the tools on irs.gov to check on your refund status.

 

It is not uncommon to take 4 weeks or more to process return refund checks in the beginning of tax season.
