I filed 4/9/2021. My payment to fed has not been debited.  I may  have not put in date for sending fed payment.  How do I get into my return to find out.?  It won't let me past screen that says my returns have been accepted.  Can I still use Turbo tax to send in my payment?

In a normal season, the IRS will debit your account on the date you specified or soon after.  We have had several reports of the IRS not debiting accounts on the scheduled date. Just be patient -- the IRS will take your money!


If you want to check the debit date you specified, look on the filing instructions for your return.  It will tell you the debit date the IRS or State will deduct the payment.  If you did not print them out you can view them using the following steps:

To get back into your return after printing or e-filing, please follow these steps:

  1. In TurboTax Online, sign into your account.
  2. You should be on your Tax Home page.
  3. Scroll down to Your tax returns & documents.
  4. Select 2020, and then select Add a State (you're not actually adding a state, this just gets you into the right menu).
  5. Once you're in your return, you can navigate around as usual.
  6. Click Tax Tools (in the black bar on the left of your screen) and then click select Print Center.
  7. Click Print, save or preview this year's return

  3. You can view the form on the screen or you can print a copy by clicking the Print box at the bottom of the screen.
  4. To return to the interview, click on the Step-By-Step icon in the top right of the blue bar.

Finally! No wonder you are Expert! I was able to navigate to filling instruction page using your direction. It says I opted to pay by direct debit. Frustratingly, date of withdrawal is blank! I wanted to verify the date I chose to pay. Any more pearls of wisdom?

The money is not due until May 17 and many people select that day. You can call the IRS payments department at 800-316-6541. If the IRS takes the money after that date- a day or two, it is not late since they set up the debit and date.
