The IRS website says “received and being processed” and Turbo Tax says “accepted.” I’ve called IRS and cannot speak to a live person. Called TurboTax and they said it’s 21 working days and people with EIC or child-tax credits are delayed in getting refund but no explanation why.
Once a tax return has been Accepted by the IRS or a State, TurboTax receives no further information concerning the tax return or the status of any tax refund.
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
If your tax return included the Earned Income Tax Credit and/or the Additional Child Tax Credit and you are receiving a federal tax refund, see this IRS website for information concerning the tax refund - https://www.irs.gov/individuals/refund-timing

" “Where’s My Refund?” will be updated Saturday February 22, 2020 with projected deposit dates for most early filers who claimed the EITC/ACTC. So EITC /ACTC filers will not see an update to their refund status for several days after February 15 this year. Please be advised these taxpayers will not see a refund date on “Where’s My Refund?” or through their software packages until then. EITC/ACTC refunds should be available in taxpayer bank accounts and debit cards by the first week of March, if taxpayers used direct deposit and there are no other issues with their tax returns. The IRS did not release the hold on the ones who claimed the credits until yesterday the 18th.. that yes mid February was the 15th but that it was a Saturday and they were closed and Monday was a holiday.. said that now that the hold has been removed the will finish processing and once it’s done processing we will see updates.. hope this helps!!
Example 20200405 = (2020 is year) (04 is cycle week) (05 is cycle day)

Cycle Code Ending in 02 - Monday and is daily
Cycle Code Ending in 03 - Tuesday and is daily
Cycle Code Ending in 04 - Wednesday and is daily
Cycle Code Ending in 05 - Thursday and is weekly
WHERE’S MY REFUND STATUS BARS DISAPPEARED
"We have gotten many comments and messages regarding the IRS Where’s My Refund Tool having your orange status bar disappearing. This has to do with the irs.gov where’s my refund site having too much traffic and lagging. This is causing images not to display and information about your federal tax return to not show up. This has happened every year since the tool was first available. This has nothing to do with you being flagged or your return being denied. Status Bars Disappeared for many Americans who filed early.
This also can have to do with your browser settings as well as your cache. Please try using a different browser such as Chrome or Firefox. Also, clear your cache in your browser settings."
When checking on the status of your refund at the IRS Where's My Refund (WMR) site, you may get the message: We cannot provide any information about your refund.
You might receive this message because:
- Your e-filed return was accepted (received) by the IRS less than 24 hours ago. Wait at least 24 hours after acceptance before using WMR.
- Your return is still pending.
- You never e-filed. You can quickly find out if you did by checking your status.
- If you don't see a status, go through the TurboTax File section again. Be sure to go all the way to the end and select Transmit my returns now.
- You mailed your return less than 4 weeks ago. Paper-filers should wait four weeks before using WMR.

Well, it's been 1month and 1 week since I filled my w- 2 with turbo tax and was accepted that same day ? Been waiting for IRS to accept my refunded . I finally figured out that the reason it's taking a long time to process it's because one of turbo tax agency's wrote last years account number and router number? So, pissed ! I even had to pay them 80 dollers out of my taxes to file . I am not to happy with turbo tax this will diffently be my last year filing my taxes with them and I will diffently let everyone know to never file their taxes with turbo tax due to ripping people off, dont care about there customers and making them happy. They dont even do there job correctly, but yet they still want to charge us?💗😡 If I dont start finding out when exactly I will be getting my taxes or keeping me updated ? Then, I will have no choice but, to get an attorney, and sue ur company?😡 Enough said waited to long? Makes me think that someone stole my Income tax check ? With the EIC /CC
.I've been filing my taxes for 30 years and I never had to wait this long to receive my income-tax before?
