Once your return is filed, TurboTax has no control over the processing of your return or the release of your refund.


Here are a couple FAQs to track your refund:
When will I get my federal tax refund?
How do I track my state refund?
Why does Where's My Refund say "approved" but TurboTax still says "accepted"?

 TurboTax does not get any information from the IRS after they accept your return, so no one at TT knows that you had to verify your identity.   Only the IRS can give you information on how long it will take for them to issue your refund.   Typically it takes about nine weeks after you verify but times can vary.


Watch the IRS refund site or call the IRS.

You need your filing status, your Social Security number and the exact amount  (line 35a of your 2023 Form 1040) of your federal refund to track your Federal refund:   



To  call the IRS:IRS:  800-829-1040  hours 7 AM - 7 PM local time Mon-Fri

Listen to each menu before making the selection.

First choose your language. Press 1 for English.

Then do NOT choose the first choice re: "Refund", or it will send you to an automated phone line.

Instead, press 2 for "personal income tax".

Then press 1 for "form, tax history, or payment".  

Then press 3 "for all other questions."

Then press 2 "for all other questions."  It should then transfer you to an agent.
