Verification of Non-Filing - But I Filed!

I *thought* I had filed my 2018 tax year taxes in April 2019. I mean, I got a receipt from TurboTax. I have a tax return (that I can still download from TurboTax!).

 

But then when I tried to file this year, it asked that I confirm my Adjusted Gross Income from 2018. So naturally, I look it up on the prior-year return from TurboTax and put that in. My e-file gets rejected!

So, I look it up on the IRS website and while I can download my 2016 and 2017 tax year returns, I can't download my 2018 tax year returns. It says "We received a request dated March 30, 2020 for verification of non-filing of returns for the above tax period or periods. We have no record of a filed Form 1040, 1040A, or 1040EZ using the above Social Security Number. You can consider this letter a verification of non-filing." The "Tax Periord or Periods" is "December, 2018".

So, did I or did I not file my taxes? I'm so confused!

If your tax return continues to be rejected with the 2018 AGI then enter a 0 (zero) for the AGI and e-file again.

If this is also rejected then you will have to print and mail the tax return.

See this TurboTax support FAQ for printing a tax return for mailing - https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/printing/help/how-do-i-print-and-mail-my-return-in-turbotax-online...

 

Paying the TurboTax account fees does not file your tax return.

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/

Scroll down to the bottom of the screen and on the section Your tax returns & documents click on Show.  Click on 2018

What is the status of the federal tax return?  If the status is anything but Accepted then the tax return was not e-filed.  If you did not print and mail the federal tax return then the return was never filed.

A 2018 tax return can only be printed and mailed, it cannot be e-filed.

 

Print, sign, date and mail the tax return to the IRS.  Include with the mailed return any forms W-2 and 1099 which have taxes withheld.  Go to this IRS website for mailing addresses - https://www.irs.gov/filing/where-to-file-paper-tax-returns-with-or-without-a-payment

There are no penalties for filing a tax return after the due date if filing for a tax refund or there are no taxes owed.

Having trouble verifying that my 2019 taxes were filed electronically

I have the same problem. My return was e-filed and "Accepted" according to TurboTax. I got the email, the text message and I even just checked my account again: "Federal return accepted 04/16/20".

 

When I log into the "Where's my refund?" tool with my refund amount (more than 0), I get the "still being processed message".

 

It gets weird when I log in to the IRS transcripts page. There, for 2019 I see a "Verification of non-filing" letter for 2019.

The transcript tool typically takes a few weeks after your return is fully processed before it will show that your return has been received and filed before you will see an update there.  Since your return is still processing, it is normal for your transcript to show that you haven't filed yet.  The verification of non-filing letter will remain until your return is fully processed and posted to your transcript. 

 

Also, many things are still delayed (as I am sure you know) and also we are getting some reports the last few days of some strange things happening with IRS systems as workers return to offices and things are coming back online so don't get too alarmed if you check back in a few days and see even stranger things.  Progress is being made and hopefully that refund will get to you sooner rather than later!

Same here. I check today and I have a non filer. And I’m so pissed. I totally sincerely understand the pandemic slowed everything down. I get that. But i filed before it all happened and was well in the window to receive info or anything before irs closed. But turbo tax deducted my bank account already and it just irritates me more.

I filed with turbo tax for free on March 26th. I received a confirmation number with no charge for filing fed or state. I'm surprised  they can't provide me any info for my filing.. I'm just chalking it up to unexperienced people.  IRS  offices are beginning to open and I paper mailed so I expect it to probably be another couple months for irs to process. Frustrating I know.
