Same situation for me. I filed on 5 April 2021 and my federal taxes were accepted that day with payment to be made that day. It has been over 10 days and the money is still in my bank account.
I'm at 7 business days now. I find it hard to believe it's an IRS backlog issue. If I go to IRS direct pay and use the same bank routing/account info, which I did just 2 days ago to pay estimated taxes, it went through in 2 days. Something tells me this is a TurboTax problem. Agree we need an admin to come address this. I'd be happy to pay using the IRS website directly, but can't afford to have my tax payment withdrawn twice if this gets fixed later!
I spoke with someone at Turbo Tax and they claim it is an IRS problem. Not sure if believe it but that is their position. It would be nice if they read the community forum on their own website and addressed the issue affecting a growing number of customers.
Quit panicking all of you ... first log in and check your payment choice and date. If your DD info is correct then all you can do is wait until they process your return and make the debit. Right now ( like last year ) the IRS is overwhelmed and behind in processing returns.
ALL the balance due returns are currently on the back burner while the IRS is busy issuing the third stimulus checks, processing returns with refunds, reconciling the stimulus credit AND they still have millions of 2019 returns to process.
So expect the payment to happen anytime on or after the date you choose and eventually it will happen.
If you selected Direct Debit from your bank account to pay the Federal taxes owed, that information was sent with your e-filed federal tax return.
Look at the Federal Information Worksheet in Part V. The bank name, routing number, account number and the date you selected to pay the taxes owed will be entered. If you did not select Direct Debit from your bank account then nothing will be in Part V. Look on your Federal Filing Instruction page for how you selected to pay the Federal taxes owed.
To access your current or prior year online tax returns sign onto the TurboTax website with the userID you used to create the account - https://myturbotax.intuit.com/
When you sign onto your online account and land on the Tax Home web page, scroll down and click on Add a state.
This will take you back to the 2019 online tax return.
Click on Tax Tools on the left side of the online program screen. Then click on Print Center. Then click on Print, save or preview this year's return. Choose the option Include government and TurboTax worksheets
For the State taxes owed the same type of information will be on the State Information Worksheet in Part V of the worksheet and on the State Filing Instructions page.
However most states, if not all, do not allow state taxes owed to be paid by Direct Debit when using tax preparation software. They require the payment by Direct Debit only when using the State tax authorities website.
Yes you would think they would make the debits ASAP however all balance due returns are not even "being opened" to see if there is a DD listed ... they are simply being shelved. Just be patient.
