Where to find submission identification number

When you e-file your federal return you will receive two emails from TurboTax.  The first one will say that your return was submitted.  The second email will tell you if your federal return was accepted or rejected.  If you e-filed a state return, there will be a third email to tell you if the state accepted or rejected your state return.

 

Your return's electronic filing status history records all e-filing activity related to the return, including the Electronic Postmark. You can print it out if needed.

There was no number in the email or Electronic Filing Status History(Window software). Is there another way to get it?

Where to find submission identification number

For 2020 tax filing, I didn't receive the second email you mentioned in your message to confirm the federal return was accepted, but my online Turbotax account said the federal return is accepted, so I assumed everything is fine. Now I'm having big trouble for 2021 tax filing, IRS said I'm in Non-filing status for 2020, so IRS rejected my 2021 tax filing due to wrong AGI no. for 2020. Of course the AGI no. for 2020 is wrong because IRS don't have my 2020 AGI no. in their system. My question is how come my online Turbo Tax account said my federal tax is accepted but IRS said I'm in Non-filing status?

Your 2020 return could be in backlog, so the IRS would have your AGI on file at the moment. You can try to input 0 as your AGI to e-file. @Leia

Is it possible that IRS didn't receive my 2020 return at all? Is it possible that TurboTax filed it on your end, but it got lost during data transimission? If it's already in their backlog, it's been over one year, I filed on 03/01/2021, it's so hard to believe that IRS took over one year to process my tax return. @CarissaM

If e-filed, it would not have gotten lost. I would suggest following the instructions here to contact the IRS. They can verify if they have the return accepted, even if not processed. @Leia

I put 0 as 2020 AGI, it worked, thank you so much! Hope IRS can process my 2020 return as soon as possible, I've been waiting for the refund for more than a year.
