It’s still hasn’t received the electronic filing

I submitted the electronic filing on the 17. The irs still can’t pull up any record of it online. It says it should be 24 hrs but it’s been days now

Your e-filed return is still in pending on the server because the IRS will not begin to accept/reject/process returns until January 27.  Only a few returns were accepted early in a test batch.  Everyone else has to wait.




So watch your emails and spam folder to make sure you know after Jan. 27 if your return was accepted or rejected.

Mine hasn't either. I haven't had any problem with acceptance within 24 hours the past several years when I used h&r block. Went with tt because of the refund anticipation loan and now it's been 2 days with no acceptance. Even worse- it's not even showing as received by the IRS! 

Are 1040's reviewed by tt prior to actually submitting them to the IRS or is something else going on? T

This is normal. It can take anywhere from a few days to 3 weeks to update. Until the IRS starts processing it on their own, you may not find record of it or the website may say that you have put in incorrect information when tracking your federal refund. As your return moves through the system, the status of it will be updated accordingly. Continue checking the Where’s My Federal Refund?  tool for updates. Updates are made daily, usually overnight. You may also download the IRS2Go app to check your Federal refund status.
