I filed my 2022 return on 3/5/23...both state and federal were accepted per email I got from Turbo Tax. Received my state refund 5 days later...but nearly 2 months later I still have not received my federal refund. I checked the IRS website and got the following information:
"We cannot provide any information about your refund. Be sure to:
- verify your filing date;
- check with your tax preparer or tax software provider; or
- verify you received your electronically filed acknowledgement e-mail." Any ideas what I can do?
Well you know the federal return was successfully efiled because the state was ... the state could not be accepted for processing before the federal was.
Once a tax return (not refund) has been Accepted for processing by the IRS or a State, TurboTax receives no further information concerning the tax return or the status of any tax refund.
After the tax return has been Accepted by the IRS (meaning only that they received the return) it will be in the Processing mode until the tax refund has been Approved and then an Issue Date will be available on the IRS website.

Sometimes people get confused by the “summary” given by TurboTax and use the wrong amount for the federal refund. Make sure you are only using the federal refund amount, and not an amount that combined your federal and state refunds.
Your federal refund amount is on line 35a of your Form 1040
