Not until the IRS opens on Jan 27, 2020 and your return is Accepted.  Until then it will stay Pending on Turbo Tax.

IRS opens on Jan 27, 2020 for 2019 returns

But the IRS has pulled some returns early for testing.

You can check your efile status here

When you efile you get back 2 emails. The first email only confirms the transmission. The second email says if the IRS (or state) Accepted or Rejected your efile.
