My return was not filed late so why am I seeing code 820

I found my 2017 tax return on time but the IRS before the 3 years deadline was up. They held it I guess looking over and reviewing it for 2 1/2 years then they took it for me because they said it was over to three year deadline even though they had it already then they tried to make me show proof of where I sent it through the post office which I did now on my tax transcript I am getting code 820 and it has the amount beside it but no negative sign like normal and it says credit transfer out to and that's all. What does that mean and what is going on I'm not really sure I've looked it up and can't find the answer but I would like to know what happened to my tax return. Thank you so much please respond to me.

2017?   Now it is 2024.    TurboTax never gets any information about your tax return after you file it ---TT cannot find out about this for you.   You say you mailed it before the filing deadline--which would have been in April 2018----six years ago.   If you used a mailing service with tracking--like certified mail--then you have some proof that you mailed it timely.

 

You have to deal with the IRS---TurboTax cannot assist with this.   You can call them to see what happened, or see if a Tax Advocate will help you.   

 

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.
