Why is state accepted and federal hasn't been received yet?

Federal and state refunds come from completely separate entities,  There is no rule as to which one will come first or how much time there will be between their arrivals.

TurboTax gives you an estimated date for receiving your refund based on a 21 day average from your date of acceptance, but it can take longer.

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 20 of your Form 1040) of your federal refund to track your Federal refund:

You can begin to track your refund on the IRS website 24 hours after your return has been accepted.

To check your refund status on the Where's My Refund? site, you will need your social security number, filing status, and refund amount in order to track your refund. Be sure to enter only the Federal Refund amount and not the total amount that includes the State refund. The amount to enter is on your Federal form 1040, line 21a. If you paid any fees out of your Federal refund, use the refund figure prior to the deduction of the fees. Also if you filed joint, be sure to enter the filers name that appears first on the return.

See the link below for additional information.

Why is there no record of my return at Where's My Refund (WMR)?

State was accepted but federal said information didn't match. I sent in what I printed from you guys so why wouldn't federal accept it.

If you mailed your return the IRS asks that you wait at least 4 weeks to track your refund. It can take a total of 6 weeks for you to receive your refund. 

The IRS is currently processing tax returns to the best of their ability. Please review the link below.
