February 04, 2021 I filed my tax return. Had Unemployment

I can't get verification on the IRS check my refund status website.  I have all the correct information.  It's May 31st and I filed February 04, 2021  This is what the IRS site says:   Refund Status Results:
We cannot provide any information about your refund. Be sure to:
verify your filing date

And since you didn't mention it, I have to ask this for completeness:


Did you efile the return, and if so, was it accepted by the IRS for processing?

You can check the efile status at the Tax Home.  Doe it say accepted, rejected, printed, or something else?


Here are some tips when using the IRS "Where's My Refund" tool:


  • Be sure you enter the correct SSN and filing status.
  • Be sure you are using only the Federal refund amount.   Do not include any state refund or any total refund or net refund (Fed and State) that TurboTax may have provided on a screen.  
  • Also be sure you are using the Federal amount before any TurboTax product fees are taken out (if you had fees and chose that option.)
  • Look at your actual Federal return to get the Federal refund amount, i.e., your Form 1040, Line 35a.
  • You can also try phoning the IRS refund hotline.  I've seen it work for some users when the WMR tool didn't.  800-829-1954
