My return is still being processed why

Is that the message you see at this IRS "Where's My Refund" tool?
https://www.irs.gov/Refunds

How long has it been processing?   
The IRS says 9 out of 10 filers who efile and choose direct deposit will get their refunds within 21 days.  That means there are still quite a few people who don't get it within 21 days.   You can monitor it with the IRS tool mentioned below.

Some returns take longer for additional processing due to specific items in the return.  Some are pulled at random for more thorough investigation.

Also, if you have EIC (earned income credit, aka EITC) or ACTC (additional child tax credit), the IRS did not start releasing those refunds until February 15.  That means people with those types of credits may not start receiving their refunds until around February 27.

If it has been processing longer than 21 days, we can tell you how to phone the IRS to see if they can tell you anything about the delay.
