I have a question How do I verify my tax returns were received?

My computer had a problem and I no longer have a copy of my 2016 return or verification that my return was received.  Where can I find this?

I have a question How do I verify my tax returns were received?

We'll send you an email when your return goes from pending status to Accepted or Rejected. After e-filing, your federal or state return may sit in Pending status 24-48 hours before its status changes.

You can also find out if the government received your return by checking your e-file status online here using your social security number and zip code.

Also, when you sign in to TurboTax, do you see the orange Take me to my return button? If so, most likely you have not filed yet. After your return has been filed, when you login, your e-file status should be the first thing you see.

After you've filed, you may go to the IRS site Where's My Refund to check the status of your refund. Or, if you're using a mobile device, you can download the IRS2Go app to check your refund status.

To track your state refund, you may reference this TurboTax FAQ.
