How do we know if tax payment went through?

We owed taxes, and we entered our bank information but the money has yet to be withdrawn by the IRS. How do we know whether payment is in progress? thanks.

How do we know if tax payment went through?


**** Make sure you set up the payment correctly ****

Check the printout or PDF of your return; look for the federal and state filing instruction sheet with the Turbotax logo. 

If you owed tax, they will show the payment information and how you decided to pay.  

>If you indicated pay by mail, then you need to mail in a check.  

>If you selected credit card, it will probably be processed in a couple of days.  

>If you selected debit from your bank account, that information is passed on to the state and IRS and they will do the debit when they process your return information -- usually 1-3 weeks for e-file and 3-4 weeks if mailed in.  

> If you also owe the state ... read the state payment instructions carefully since most states cannot be paid from within the TT system and requires additional steps. https://ttlc.intuit.com/questions/1900884-what-are-my-options-for-getting-my-state-refund-or-for-pay...
