    Intuit website states: Tax Topic 152 simply means your return is still in the processing stage and topics and bars disappearing mean the process is moving along.
    The general timeline of e-filed returns is: Transmission > Acceptance > Processing > Approval > Refund.
    The IRS started processing returns later than in prior years and as such has a backlog to work through. They also just recently started processing returns claiming EIC and/or ACTC.

              What if my IRS refund is taking longer than 21 days?

              First, check the IRS Where’s My Refund? site to get the most updated status of your 2021 refund. If you paper-filed, wait at least 4 weeks before checking Where’s My Refund?.

              The IRS is taking more than 21 days (and up to 90 to 120 days) to issue refunds for tax returns with the Recovery Rebate Credit, Earned Income Tax Credit and Additional Child Tax Credit.


                If they need to make any corrections, they may offset (reduce) your refund. In some cases, the correction might even increase your refund.

                Once that part’s done, the government approves your refund, which means it’s ready to be deposited or sent. At that point the IRS site will update with a direct deposit date.
