Wat does we received your refund and its being processed mean.

They are processing your Tax Return and once the IRS has finished processing your Tax Return successfully they will update your status to "approved". Next, they will add an estimated direct deposit to the WMR. Turbo Tax has no control over how long it takes the IRS to process your return. The guidelines we are given is that for 9 out of 10 filers, you will get your refund within 21 days. If you claimed the EITC or ACTC then those refunds are expected to be delayed per the rules of the PATH act. If twenty-one days have passed (day twenty-two or later)  since your refund was accepted and you haven't gotten a refund date, then you can call the IRS at 800-829-1040 to have them check on your status and see what, if anything, is holding up your return. If you call any sooner, you may wait on hold for a long time to be told to call back after 21 days. The IRS does not work on first in first out so your refund date may not be the same as anyone else you know even if they had a return that is exactly the same as yours.
