Typically after tax returns are received by the IRS, refunds are issued within 21 days but due to recent changes due to Covid-19 your tax return may take longer to process.
You can check the status of your return/refund at Irs.gov
We also have a great article on the subject: Where's My Tax Refund?
Otherwise, if you are seeing that your return status has not been updated, according to the IRS:
"Some tax returns take longer to process than others for many reasons. We will contact you by mail when we need more information to process your return."
You can find more information and other FAQ with Irs.gov
Also, you can try getting in contact with the IRS here
Hope that helps!
How were you informed about receiving the tax refund?
If you are looking at the TurboTax Tax Home web page, the dates posted for receiving a refund are only estimates based on the IRS target of issuing a tax refund 21 days after receiving the tax return.
If accepted by the IRS use the federal tax refund website to check the refund status - https://www.irs.gov/refunds
After the tax return has been Accepted by the IRS (meaning only that they received the return) it will be in the Processing mode until the tax refund has been Approved and then an Issue Date will be available on the IRS website.
See this IRS website for federal tax refund FAQ's - https://www.irs.gov/refunds/tax-season-refund-frequently-asked-questions
