Please see this TurboTax discussion for reference:  Refund

You might need to call the IRS soon since it's been more than 21 days.  Please contact https://www.irs.gov/help/telephone-assistance  or IRS.

Accepted means received for processing.  It does not mean Approved.  Once your filing has been Accepted, TT receives no further updates.  But the IRS is seriously backlogged due to all the new tax laws and extra stimulus filings, as well as unprocessed 2019 returns left over from the COVID shutdown.  Lots of other folks are still waiting, so please continue to be patient.

Thanks... I talk to the irs and they said they can have up to 10 weeks before sending it out.
