    @Fred H: You can be accepted and be processed in a week, but there’s a time frame of dates for acceptance that are seeing delays, possibly because of resequencing, possibly because they’re looking harder at the stimulus payments.

    I filed 2018 taxes in December 2019. Yes late, but expecting a refund so its in the governments favor. Still no refund and no information available online. I spoke with someone and they said they cannot see if it has been filed. How do I find out if they received the return??

    Filed my 2019 taxes in July 2019 with H&R Block taking advantage of the extension. I have still not received my refund. The Where’s My Refund site keeps saying they received it and it’s being processed. H&R Block says they verified on their end that it was received and can do nothing further. Getting through to the IRS to speak to a human is all but impossible. Don’t have a credit card so I can’t get on to What now?

    If the irs agent asks me who I filed with and if I received a confirmation email does that mean TT made a error

    Does return received mean my taxes have been accepted?
    I don’t remember if that was the wording last year or not
