how will i know that my return has been accepted?

Hi I was just wondering how and when I will be notified about my 2011 return has gone through, and is it the same when my refund gets directly deposited? Thank you!

    You should recieve a email from turbo tax or you can check your efile status by going on the turbo tax website.

    You would receive a email stating whether your return was accepted or rejected, you can also check the status of your efiled return.

    To check your e-file status:

    - Print & File tab
    - Click Check E-File Status
    - It should say either Pending, Accepted, or Rejected

    Or, you can check your efile status at the following website and print it out:
    https://turbotax.intuit.com/efile/efile_status_lookup.jsp

    Once your return is accepted, you can check the status of your Federal refund at the IRS website “Where’s My Refund” (it can take about 72 hours from the time your return is accepted to see any information):
    https://sa1.www4.irs.gov/irfof/lang/en/irfofgetstatus.jsp

    If you have a State refund see the following click on the blue Track Your State Refund link
    http://turbotax.intuit.com/support/iq/Tax-Refund/When-will-I-get-my-tax-refund-/GEN12488.html

    You will not receive a notice when your refund is deposited into your account, you would have to check your bank on the date that was given you from the IRS website (and/or State) .
    • i think i gave the wrong email
    • There is a problem with the emails being sent on acceptance.  You should get an acceptance well before you see the direct deposit.  I got one of the acceptance emails last year, but this year using same email...it never arrived.
    • I won't have a refund, but owe money. I keyed in my bank account and the amount to withdraw. I have no friggin idea whether just that information, or also my return, were sent to the IRS by TurboTax because if you dont chose to efile because you are afraid you will have to pay a lump sum, then Turbo Tax does not tell you

       whether their site sent the bank withdraqwals info to the irs

      or whether they alsdo sent your return.

      They just drop yo0u flat down and you can't talk to them because they dropped the live chat for this or any other questions about Turbo Tax.
    • i submittted my federal return on 4/23/2012 its been 7 days and its still saying pending but my state was accepted what am i to do?....is this normal?

    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:

    1. 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.
    2. 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.
    3. 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.
    4. 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.
    5. 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.
