How do I check my e-file status?

SOLVEDby TurboTax14321Updated May 05, 2022

To check your e-file status, sign in to TurboTax, and go to Tax Home (if you're not already there). If you've submitted your return, you'll see pending, rejected, or accepted status. If you haven't submitted your return yet, you'll see a let's keep working on your taxes! message and sections like Personal Info and Income & Expenses.

Your e-file status is different from your refund status. If you want to track your refund, go to Where's My Refund.

If you've got an Alexa device, you can enable it to check your e-file status for you.

If you used TurboTax CD/Download. follow these steps to check your e-file status:

  1. Open the File menu
  2. Select Check E-file status
  3. Or, go to the File tab and select the Check E-file Status header

If your returns have been accepted, then that's it! You don't need to check your e-file status anymore.

If you want to track your federal refund, visit the IRS Where's My Refund page.

If you want to track your state refund, visit our How do I track my state refund page.
