Where is my tax return

You mean where is your refund?  Your return if the 1040 form you send to the IRS.


Turbo Tax only gives you an estimated date. The IRS usually pays most refunds within 21 days. But these are not normal times. This year is taking the IRS longer to send the refunds. There are millions more people filing returns to get the Stimulus payment.

Only the IRS can tell you. If your return was Accepted then check IRS Where's my refund

When will you get your refund?

Where is my tax return

If you are mentioning the IRS "Where's My Refund" site, then you must give your social security number, your status, and your refund amount.  That amount must be the exact amount on your return, not the adjusted amount if you are having the TurboTax fees subtracted from your refund.
