Unfortunately TurboTax gets no information about the status of your refund.
In normal times, the IRS says that most filers get their refunds within 21 days from the time their tax return is accepted.
Many returns are taking longer now since the IRS did not process returns for a while and there is now a big backlog of unprocessed returns.
Some press reports stated the IRS has started reopening offices and processing centers and are starting to process mailed returns again after not processing any for several weeks but no IRS press release has confirmed this.
They are now taking phone calls with a limited staff but it's hard to get through.

If you efiled your return, have you confirmed that the return was submitted by TurboTax and accepted by the IRS?

If accepted, what does the IRS tracking web site say about the status of your refund?

If you filed by paper, the IRS have reduced personnel and has been working on millions of stimulus checks. Try filing electronically.  If you already used the electronic filing, try calling the IRS at 7 A.M. , when there is less traffic.
