Yea I got accepted on the 27th I'm still processing to this is crazy never had to wait this long
The IRS had to revamp at the last minute all protocols for taxes due to Obamacare and changes in the tax codes. There were thousands of lines of code that had to be added and altered. That is the party line...
I filed on Feb 1, got state accepted and deposited within 2 days!! My federal is still "pending"!!!! It's been over a month! TT claims its on the IRS side......not sure what the heck is going on. TT fails to send any email updates, be nice if they communicated the status of these delays each week at least.
My mother is an accountant, she said it is the IRS, NOT TurboTax. She said the IRS is not accepting, this happens every year but this year it's really bad so many people affected and therefore a lot of comments. I filed mine 2 weeks ago and nothing accepted, not my S-Corp return for federal nor my NYS and Federal personal returns. You can mail it in. TT gives you a cover page so mail it in if you are not comfortable waiting. Send it certified return receipt ($5 approx) per return. But even if the IRS receives returns by mail, they are NOT processing them that quickly. This country is going downhill all b/c of our gov't. NOT TT.

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.
