    Except for a small number of returns that were used for testing, the IRS isn’t accepting them until the 30th. And if yours had been part of that batch, you’d have gotten an email about it already. You might not want to hear it, but that’s how it is.

    After they start accepting them, you should get an acceptance or rejection in 24-48 hours, sometimes sooner.

    The IRS is not processing returns until the 30th. Although you have been “accepted”, that means they have your return, and have not run it yet. After they open efile on the 30th, they will begin processing returns, starting with all of the ones backed up in their system that were accepted early. It may take a few days to be processes after the 30th. “Where’s My Refund” will be active starting the 30th as well, so you can check the progress of your return.
