TT cannot broadcast a general message on the website and even if they did no one would see it. It may be nice if they warn you when you put in for the Debit but that has never been a part of the programming and the info fluctuates weekly so it is not feasible to keep up with the changes on a timely manner.
Sadly the new normal since covid happened means that the IRS will usually take much longer to process payments and the returns with balance dues on them ... how much longer fluctuates and the IRS site doesn't even post this information ... we post it here from current and past experiences.
Having same problem. Taxes owed where supposed to be debited on 4/12 and still haven't been taken out. In past has always been with 24 to 48 hours. I am on hold with them now to try and get answers. Maybe they just don't need our money any more...
I am starting to think that this is a Turbo Tax problem I have spoke to people who have paid their taxes via other means and the IRS debited their bank accounts on the exact dates specified.
As I posted above, same issue. However, 15 days after my requested withdrawal date, the funds have finally been withdrawn. So maybe the 7-10 days is now 14-21 days. Annoying, but resolved over time.
I filed state and federal returns together and already received state refund. Federal was accepted on 4/11/21 and direct debit was scheduled to be paid on 4/15/21. I did not receive a confirmation number and my Tax form printed with XXXXX's for routing and account number. I checked earlier today payment was not withdrawn. I cannot contact IRS as they want the confirmation number....Now what?
Check the printout or PDF of your return; look for the state cover sheet with the Turbotax logo. If you owed tax, it will show the payment information and how/when you decided to pay. Read the state payment instructions carefully since most states cannot be paid from within the TT system and requires additional steps.
