Sign in to your account after you have e-filed your return to check the status of your e-filed return. You will go straight to the View Return Status and Print Your Copy screen with the status of your return.
If you filed an extension, you can check the status of your extension that you filed by signing in to your account and going to Personal > Extension > Check Status/Print Extension and checking the status on the View Extension Status and Print Extension screen.
The IRS usually processes returns in less than 1 hour after you e-file your return, but it can take several hours or even days. The IRS will tell us whether your e-filed return was accepted or rejected. The View Return Status and Print Your Copy screen will provide you with details and instructions specific to your acceptance or rejection.
If you do not see the View Return Status and Print Your Copy screen when you sign into your account, click the Home link at the top of the screen followed by Check Return Status.
