When TurboTax says Return Filed, it means that your return has been electronically filed (E-Filed).

@Jeffboy55 No. "return filed" does not mean a check was mailed to you. If you e-filed, you need to know if the IRS accepted or rejected your tax return. If it was accepted you can track your refund on the IRS "Where's My Refund?" site.
Did you e-file? Did you click a big orange button that said “Transmit my returns now?”
When you e-file your federal return you will receive two emails from TurboTax. The first one will say that your return was submitted. The second email will tell you if your federal return was accepted or rejected. If you e-filed a state return, there will be a third email to tell you if the state accepted or rejected your state return.
First, check your e-file status to see if your return was accepted:
If the IRS accepted it, what does it say here?
Or does your account say “Ready to Mail?”
Note: If it says “Ready to Mail” or “Printed” that means YOU have to mail it yourself. TurboTax does not mail your tax return for you.
