Why haven’t I gotten approved for my tax return yet?

Asked by: vdlicata 381 views YA Discussion

I filed my tax on jan 29, 2013 and received an email from turbotax on the 30th stating my refund was accepted. I have been using the Wheres My Refund site to track my refund and it still has not passed the received refund options. I filed a few of my friends as well at the same time and they have gotten to the refund approved stage on Wheres My Refund 3 days ago! They also have a deposit date.

I am curious to know what could be holding it so long? When Turbotax says its accepted; does that mean I have nothing to worry about? Or should I be worried its taking so long?

I filed a simple refund. Married filing joint with 2 dependents. I don’t understand why its taking so long, really hoping I didn’t do anything wrong!

PLEASE HELP!

    Accepted means it’s at the IRS. They haven’t looked at it yet. Most people who filed when you did are in the exact same phase. Keep in mind there are MILLIONS of returns being filed. My son filed the day before you & got his refund today. I filed the same day you did & I’m still sitting there as accepted. You won’t know if you did anything wrong until they process it.
