Am I getting my federal taxes money and my state refund yes or no

Did you e-file and was the return accepted? Why do you not know whether you are getting a refund or if you owe?  Did you not look at the results of the tax return you prepared?   What does it say in your account?  What do you see on your Form 1040?  Does it show a refund on line 35a or an amount of tax due on line 37?





Click on Tax Tools on the left side of the screen. Click on Tools. Click on View Tax Summary. Click on Preview my 1040 on the left side of the screen.






TurboTax gives you an estimated date for receiving your refund based on a 21 day average from your date of acceptance, but it can take longer.  “21 days”  is not a promise from TurboTax or the IRS. 




First, check your e-file status to see if your return was accepted: 



Once your federal return has been accepted by the IRS, only the IRS has any control.  TurboTax does not receive any updates from the IRS. Your ONLY source of information about your refund now is the IRS.


You need your filing status, your Social Security number and the exact amount  (line 35a of your 2023 Form 1040) of your federal refund to track your Federal refund:   


To track your state refund:    




If you chose to have your TurboTax fees deducted from your federal refund, that will take some extra time, while the third party bank handles the refund processing.








If you owe tax due, you have to pay it yourself by the filing deadline on April 15, 2024.



 If you have federal tax due you can pay by mailing your payment with the 1040V voucher, (which has the address printed on it, having the payment taken out of a designated bank account, or you can pay directly on the IRS website.

You must pay your state tax due using the state’s preferred method of receiving payment.  For most states that will be by making a payment to the state’s own tax website, or by mailing a check or money order.

No one can see or access your tax return but you.


In the Review section of the program you are shown the amount of refund or taxes owed for both your federal and state tax returns.

In the File section of the program on Step 2, if you have a refund or taxes owed you are given several options on how to receive the tax refund or pay the taxes owed.
