I had up to 3 corrections, some past April 15. I'd almost always get a correction around April 1. So, after being forced to submit amended returns, I got in the habit of waiting.

BTW, it may not have completely been E*Trade. I could have been some ETF I was holding that was lax in reporting properly. When I primarily moved to VG around 2010, I consolidated quite a bit and got rid of odd ETFs I was holding.
I get corrected 1099 most years. I always wait for that per the schedule. It is based more on investments held than brokerages.

My son's was e-filed Sunday and I noticed it was accepted yesterday. Not sure exactly when since I did it as a friends and family via the AARP Tax Aide program where I volunteer.

I guess I’m the only one who didn’t get acceptance in a day or so. Wonder if it’s because I had a ZERO balance - small refund I just applied to 2021, first time I’ve done that.

I emailed my deceased mother's return to the IRS at 11.41am this morning and received notice that it had been accepted at 11:45.

Shouldn't be. I've got a return like that which I'll have filed in the next day or two. If I remember to I'll come back to this thread Thursday and post an update.

I wouldn't worry about it. If the IRS isn't processing your return, they're not processing the scammer's either.

I efiled my DM's return with HRBlock software a few days before the 12th. Around 1am on the 13th I received the confirmation that the return has been accepted by the IRS along with the submission number documenting this.

I don't know? I was pretty close too, and only owed the IRS $93. My hypothesis is that they were swamped, and you were just the random person who got bumped back. Maybe you'll get the acceptance email tomorrow.

Exactly. Why is this an issue? Paper return guy here. Fed return received with zero due. By no fault of mine I'm due $436 from the state which is to be deposited tomorrow. Why all the fuss? Plan ahead and be sure you don't have a refund. Beyond that who cares? If you really owe taxes they'll contact you. That's part of the joy of being retired.

I e-filed Jan 31st via TurboTax. Received an email saying something about being an early bird and estimated acceptance would be Feb 12th. Fed return was accepted Feb 11th and state was Feb 12th.

(Did you check your spam filter? Doesn't seem right that you didn't receive your acceptance email.)

I efiled with TT on the 12th and got a Federal acceptance on Saturday or Sunday. My DC filing appears to be in limbo. I have a VG brokerage account and the 1099s were available earlier than I expected. Maybe that's because I have mutual funds and no ETFs.

Morgan, it’s set to my ex’s email so I will ask him. The refund is going to my account. This is the last year we will jointly file.

I eFiled using H & R, and it took 8 days to receive an email saying my return was accepted at the IRS. I planned to print and mail a hard copy sometime in March if I wasn't notified of it's acceptance. I've used H & R for several years and this was the first time there was any delay at all.

There may not have been a delay. You got an IRS acceptance 8 days after you filed with H&R but IRS only began accepting files 5 days ago. You may have missed the part where H&R said they would hold the file until 2/12 and then file with IRS.

Well, this is not going to be of much help to the OP, but I e-filed both my Federal and State taxes at 9:38 this morning, courtesy of Turbo Tax. At 10:06, I received a notification that my Federal return had been accepted. The notification about the state return followed at 10:36. All over within a little less than an hour.
