Hi all I was wondering after it says "Accepted" on Turbotax how long it takes to find out the status at the IRS "Where's my Refund" page. My return was accepted yesterday at 2pm Pacific time but I can not find any record on the IRS page. Also since it was accepted at 2pm Pacific time yesterday does that mean I will not get the direct deposit until 2-1 instead of 1-25.
On another note it is really sad to see how many people are relying on this refund this year to buy food, pay rent, utilities, car payment, etc.....It is really sad. I hope we all have a better year in 2012.
It can take up to 72 hours for WMR to acknowledge your information. Even after it does, it will lock you out and not recognize your information if you check it too many times in a day. It will reset and allow you access the following day. Really not a fantastic system Imho.
Do you owe taxes from a previous year? If you owe the IRs back taxes or if you are currently on an installment payment plan, your refund status will not be available on WMF. :(
it took me about 48 hours from being accepted to be able to see me history in WMR

People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:
- Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
- Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
- Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
- Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
- Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
