You will have to check the status of that with the IRS and your state. I will provide how to do that below. They do not provide an update to TurboTax for mailed returns, as they would with e-filed returns. 

If you mailed your federal return and are expecting a refund you can start checking the status of your return on the IRS website Where's My Refund 4 weeks after mailing your return. It takes that amount of time for it to show up in their system. 

You only want to call them if it’s been at least 6 weeks since you mailed and at that time, you can reach them at the IRS tax refund hotline at 800-829-4477, Monday - Friday, 7:00 a.m. to 11:30 p.m.

Choose your state here How do I track my state refund? and it will provide you instructions on how to check the status of your state return on your state's website.

The IRS asks that paper filers wait 4 weeks before checking on the status of their returns. After the 4 week period, the IRS will receive and begin processing your return. https://ttlc.intuit.com/replies/5340655
