Please see the FAQ below. 

If you requested your TurboTax fees be deducted from your federal tax refund and the IRS has held your refund over 45 days after your original estimated refund date then TurboTax will request payment for use of the software to prepare your return.

"...you'll receive a Request for Payment email, which includes instructions on how you can pay your TurboTax fees (minus the Refund Processing fee, if any)."

Did you select the Refund Processing Service to pay your TurboTax online fees?  That's the option to have your TT fees deducted from your federal return.  Review your TurboTax fees by seeing the link below:

I'm not a TurboTax employee; I'm a user like you.  I'm just trying to figure out exactly what the issue is.  Could you please clarify?

My refund was selected to be reviewed by the irs. They are wanting my federal tax information and copy of my employers form, which is none issue, now that I finally got my letter 2 months later telling me what has happened (literally received it today). I've called turbotax this past week and they could give no information other then my return was accepted w no issues and they closed my case as solved. A few days ago I received an email saying that my return was being held up. (duh) I've called and I've been trying to find out what was happening, I've used the irs wheres my refund tool, I've tried calling turbotax and the irs.

Okay, I see.  Because you elected to pay your TurboTax fees out of your federal refund, and now your refund has been delayed, TurboTax is going to go ahead and charge their fees to your credit card.  This is not unusual, as TurboTax does have to be paid.  The agreement to deduct your fees from your federal refund assumes that your refund comes in a somewhat timely fashion.  

TurboTax has no info or influence on when you get your refund once your return gets to the IRS and is accepted.  But I will say that you should not be charged the $34.99 Refund Processing Fee if your refund is delayed so long that you are unable to use that feature.  The amount that TurboTax charges you should not include that fee.  

I'll post your question where TurboTax Moderators can see it and maybe offer additional assistance to you.
