Why haven't my return been received or accepted by the IRS and i filed 1/13/21 and it says my return has been transmitted to the IRS on 2/12/21?

This Turbo Tax FAQ will show you how to check your e-file status, as this is something we will not know. You will also receive an email advising you of the return being accepted or rejected. If you opted in for text messages, you will receive that also.

Turbo Tax will not have a status on your refund. If the IRS website says processing, this means they are working on it. Please use this link to track your refund from the IRS.

The IRS did not start accepting returns until 02/12/21.  It may take 48 hours or so for the IRS to accept your return.  For further details, please see the Help Article here.

Even though you filed early, the IRS did not begin accepting returns until Feb 12, 2021. 

 

Every return is different, so therefore some take longer than others.

So any idea of when my return should get an update status it's already 2/16/21 I filed 1/13/21 and I'm only claiming my EIP that I never received 1st round or 2nd.

Well I can't check the status of my tax return because every time I do it says my information doesn't match. It just doesn't make any since to me at all. And then on the turbotax website/app the blue bar is filled but just a little so I do t know at this point. And its crazy because I was a early filer who is ONLY claiming the EIP that I never received.

This is normal. It can take anywhere from a few days to 3 weeks to update. The IRS began processing returns on 2/12, you may not find record of it or the website may say that you have put in incorrect information when tracking your federal refund. As your return moves through the system, the status of it will be updated. Continue checking the Where’s My Federal Refund tool for updates. Updates are made daily, usually overnight.
