Where is my tax return

TT does not know when your refund is Approved, so cannot tell you that.  It sends you an email when the IRS has Accepted (received) your efile for processing.  Approved is a later step. Some users have been waiting since January.

Where is my tax return

Is it normal to still be waiting for my return since April? No confirmation email from theIRS either. The status on the IRS webpage states they have no information for me

@Wulfenheizen - did you efile or mail the return?

TurboTax did not say your refund was "approved."    TurboTax can only tell you that your e-file was "accepted" which is not the same as "approved."  And many returns are taking longer than normal to be processed.

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 35a of your 2021 Form 1040) of your federal refund to track your Federal refund:

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.
