How do I check my e-file status?

SOLVEDby TurboTax13600Updated July 27, 2021

You can check your current status online. Sign into your online TurboTax account, then, go to Tax Home.

If you've got an Alexa device, you can enable it to check for you.

Keep in mind:

  • The E-file status is what stage of the process your return is in.
  • The Refund status is when you can expect your refund. (Note: If you’re interested in learning more about your refund status, go to Where's My Refund)

If you used TurboTax CD/Download you can check your e-file status using the following instructions:

  1. Open the File menu.
  2. Select Check E-file status.
  3. Or, go to the File tab and select the Check E-file Status header.

Once your returns are accepted, only the IRS and the state knows when you will receive your refund. The IRS does not provide your refund status to TurboTax.

You can check the IRS website Where's My Refund for your Federal information?

If you have a state refund, visit the How do I track my state refund page, and then select your state.
