TurboTax gives you an estimated date for receiving your refund based on a 21 day average from your date of acceptance, but it can take longer.
Once your federal return has been accepted by the IRS, only the IRS has any control. TurboTax does not receive any updates from the IRS. Your ONLY source of information about your refund now is the IRS.
You need your filing status, your Social Security number and the exact amount (line 20 of your Form 1040) of your federal refund to track your Federal refund:
To track your state refund:
On the IRS site you are also offered the use of an app called IRS2Go
If you chose to have your TurboTax fees deducted from your federal refund, that will take some extra time, while the third party bank handles the refund processing.
@chrishelly2011 In addition to what @xmasbaby0 state above, the IRS issues refunds, not TurboTax. This means that we can't say for sure why you haven’t received your refund as of yet. You'll have to speak directly to IRS to find out more about the delay. You can reach them at 800-829-1040. When calling, be sure to have the following:
- Your Social Security Number or Individual Taxpayer Identification Number
- Your filing status (Single, Head of Household, Married Filing Joint, or Married Filing Separate)
- Your prior-year tax return (they may ask you questions from it to verify your identity)
- A copy of the tax return you’re calling about
- Any letters they may have sent you
- Paper and pen to take notes—make sure to write down the day you called and the name and ID number of the agent you spoke to, as well as any instructions or deadlines you were given.
Please note: It may take over an hour to get your call answered as the IRS lines are busy at this time of year.
