Can you tell me how is my tax return already accepted? Your website says the IRS will not accept taxes until January 29th. Just wondering how mines got accepted prior?

It has not been officially accepted by the IRS. It is in a queue at TurboTax waiting for the IRS to open. Once it does, your return will be immediately transmitted to them.

So why would Turbotax tell me it was accepted intead of leaving it as pending? It says on the website that "accepted" means the government has it. Maybe im reading something wrong

What most people don't understand is that tax providers don't "push" tax returns to the IRS.  The tax returns go to various data warehouses, and the IRS connects and downloads them according to their own schedule, timetable and priorities.  Once a return is in the data warehouse, only the IRS can determine when to download it and begin processing.  They always do some early tests, but it's not announced and we don't even know if it is dozens, hundreds, or thousands, or more.
