on the "where is my refund" site i get the following status : "Refund return has been received and is currently being processed.Your return has been received and is currently being processed." In years past I this used to take maybe 2-3 days. Is this indicative of an issue with my return?
That just means that the IRS has accepted your return and they are now processing it. Processing times can vary with them though. Patience is virtue here. It can range from a span of just a few days up to about 3 weeks to see a move from accepted to approved with the IRS.
Since everyone's tax situation will vary, when everyone gets approved will also vary. And you can find more details on that here Why do some refunds take longer than others?
