The meter in TurboTax is based on an estimate of when people typically receive their refund. Once your tax return is accepted TurboTax no longer receives updates from the IRS and you should track your status on Where’s My Refund?. It has the most up to date information available about your refund. The tool is updated daily (usually overnight) so you will just usually need to check once a day for progress.
For more on the timing of your refund please see this and what updates you will see as your return goes from processing to approved: TurboTax FAQ.
