Did you e-file? Did you click a big orange button that said “Transmit my returns now?”
When you e-file your federal return you will receive two emails from TurboTax. The first one will say that your return was submitted. The second email will tell you if your federal return was accepted or rejected. If you e-filed a state return, there will be a third email to tell you if the state accepted or rejected your state return.
First, check your e-file status to see if your return was accepted:
If the IRS accepted it, what does it say here?
https://www.irs.gov/refunds Or does your account say “Ready to Mail?”
Note: If it says “Ready to Mail” or “Printed” that means YOU have to mail it yourself. TurboTax does not mail your tax return for you.
How long ago was your return accepted?
Sometimes people get confused by the “summary” given by TurboTax and use the wrong amount for the federal refund. Make sure you are only using the federal refund amount, and not an amount that combined your federal and state refunds.
Your federal refund amount is on line 20 of your Form 1040
No, I did not receive any of those reply, so how do I go back to retrieve it. I have tried. After I thought I had finished mine, I tried to submit a tax return for someone else, that person return keeps showing instead of mine, in which his is not completed as well.
Oh no. Did you use the same account and user ID for both returns? If you did that the second return overwrote the first one , and it is lost forever. With online TT you get one return per fee. Each return needs its own account and user ID.
If that is what happened, you have to start over.
