The track my refund IRS website says that my refund is still being processed, however TurboTax says it was accepted. Which is the case?

Has by refund/return been approved and I'm just waiting for the money, as shown on the TurboTax site, or is it still being processed and reviewed by the IRS as their Track My Refund Site says?

The track my refund IRS website says that my refund is still being processed, however TurboTax says it was accepted. Which is the case?

Accepted on the TurboTax website only means the IRS received the e-filed tax return without any e-file errors which would cause the IRS to reject the e-filed tax return.

 

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.

As indicated above, Accepted is not the same as Approved, which is a later step.
