I need my filing date from 2019

How can I prove I e-filed my return (what is an "electronic postmark")?

As long as you transmitted your return before 11:59 PM on the day taxes were due, your return is considered timely filed even if it doesn't get accepted until after the deadline.

You can show you e-filed before the deadline using an Electronic Postmark, which is a time stamp that shows when your return was transmitted. You can find it in TurboTax. See below for instructions on how to find it for your current or prior year return.

(If you're concerned because you haven't yet received your refund, there are many reasons why a refund may be delayed, even if you filed on time.)

Current tax year

TurboTax Online and mobile app

Simply check your e-file status online (you’ll need your Social Security number and zip code) to retrieve your filing status history. You can then capture a screenshot or print it out from your web browser.

If the link above doesn't work, follow these steps:

  1. Open your return.
  2. On the first screen (it will say "Take me to my return"), scroll down and select Your tax returns and documents.
  3. Select the current year.
  4. Select View efile details.
  5. You can then capture a screenshot or print it out from your web browser.

TurboTax CD/Download software

  1. First, open your return.
  2. Then, from File menu in TurboTax, select Check E-file Status.
  3. Select Print.

Prior tax year

For returns before the current year that you e-filed with TurboTax: 

  1. Open your return.
  2. On the first screen (it will say "Take me to my return"), scroll down and select Your tax returns and documents.
  3. Select the year you e-filed.
  4. Select View efile details.
  5. You can then capture a screenshot or print it out from your web browser.

And When you efile you get back 2 emails. The first email only confirms the transmission. The second email says if the IRS (or state) Accepted or Rejected your efile. 

 

When you log into your account you should also see the status and if it was Accepted or Rejected, Started, Printed, Ready to Mail, etc.  what does it say?
