TurboTax does not get any information at all from the IRS after you file your tax return.  No one at TurboTax knows what the IRS is doing with your return.

 

The IRS refund site is not showing information now for 2020 refunds.  It is only showing 2021 refund information, so if you try to track a 2020 refund it will tell you there is no information.

 

There have been a lot of delays for 2020  federal refunds.  Did you mail your return or e-file?

 

If you mailed it:

 

MAILED RETURNS

 

 

 

If  you mail a tax return (or a payment) to the IRS, it is a good idea to use a mailing service that will track it like UPS or certified mail so you will know it was received.

 

When you mail a tax return, you need to attach any documents showing tax withheld, such as your W-2’s or any 1099’s. 

 

TurboTax will not know anything about your mailed return, and will continue to show “Ready to Mail” on your account.  TurboTax will not know that you put your tax return in an envelope and took it to a mailbox.  TurboTax does not get updates on mailed  (or e-filed) returns.

 

The IRS refund site is only showing information about 2021 refunds now so it will not show anything about your 2020 refund.

 

 

Or......

 

 

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.

 

Does your TT account say that your return was accepted?  Or does it say something else—like “rejected”, “printed” or “ready to mail?”  If it does not say accepted then it was not filed unless you put it in an envelope yourself and mailed it.

 

 TurboTax does not mail your tax return for you.

 

 

If your e-file was accepted:

 

 

If you chose to have your fees deducted from your federal refund:

Why has the irs not received my 2020 tax return that turbo tax electronically filled?

Turbo tax e-filed 

Looked for the past year on where's my refund 

All I get from the IRS ' WE HAVE NOT RECIEVED YOUR  2020 RETURN" 

 

I just do not get it.

Turbo Tax E-Filed For me and say they cannot help as they do not have information 

AND 

IRS says we have not received

And here I sit in limbo and get the run around with no answers from either with Turbo Tax and the IRS  putting the blame on each other  

Turbo TAX E-Filed them (So they say) surely then Turbo Tax must have some proof of them being filed 

OR IS THIS JUST ANOTHER SCAM OF THIEFERY BY ANOTHER CORPORATION that everybody has to deal with every day of their lives

Why has the irs not received my 2020 tax return that turbo tax electronically filled?

Turbo Tax should help.  They can confirm if you filed.

 

Did you efile?  Was it Accepted?  Maybe you didn't finish filing it or it Rejected.  When you log into your account you should also see the status and if it was Accepted or Rejected, Started, Printed, Ready to Mail, etc.  what does it say?

 

Then when you efile you get back 2 emails.  The first email only confirms the transmission.  The second email says if the IRS (or state) Accepte.d or Rejected your efile.  Check back though your emails if you have them.

I don't know why I am getting your emails. I don't work for Turbotax or Intuit and never heard of you. Check your info. I'm just a guy who doesn't have anything to do with this, other than I've been using Turbotax for the past several years.

In the PDF of your TurboTax return, the last page of the federal return should be an "electronic postmark" that shows your name, Social Security number, the date and time that you e-filed the return, and the date that the IRS accepted it.
