It says that returns will be accepted starting 1/29 but mine already says it's accepted.Does that mean my return will be within 21 days of when it said accepted, or will it be 21 days from the 29th?

The IRS officially starts accepting returns on 1/29/2018 and will begin processing refunds after that date. Some returns are accepted before the official accepting date for testing purposes. Even though your was accepted early, the refunds will not begin to be processed till after the official e-file date.
