Returns Pending Since the 14th

I understand that the IRS is not allowing the majority of filers to transmit their federal returns until the 27th. However my state return has also been pending since January 14th. Is TurboTax holding both to transmit at the same moment or might there be an issue? I have never seen that occur before. It's never taken more than two days to have my state accepted.

Mine is saying the same thing pending on both federal ans state but it now says I e filed on 17th but now says transmitted on Jan 27 so I think once 8am hits everyone's will start being accepted instead of pending

That is normal.   A state return cannot be accepted until AFTER the Federal return has been accepted.   Once the Federal return has been accepted, then the state tax agency computers will decide on the state return.

 

If the Federal return is rejected, then the state return also automatically rejects.

The IRS will begin processing today January 27 (except for a few test returns they pulled early.)   But they will have a big backlog, and you may or may not hear anything today.  Because there are so many, the IRS retrieves returns from TurboTax servers in manageable batches and in no particular order as far as I know.  Each year it's unknown how smoothly it will start off, and there could be delays due to the volume.

 

When your return is accepted or rejected, you should get an email notification.   You can also check the status by logging into your Online TurboTax account and looking at the efile status on the Tax Home page.
