We filed our taxes on January 24th. I got an email on Feb 12th saying our submission was accepted by the IRS. I haven't heard anything since then and the refund has not showed up in our checking account yet.

Was your AGI $0? If this was the case then the IRS would likely not accept the e-file.

Normally I would think that your tax software would catch this and display an appropriate error message when you tried to e-file.

A workaround for $0 AGI returns that you would like to e-file is to put $1 of phantom income on the other income line. For a description say something like 'IN ORDER TO EFILE'.

There is a difference between a return with a $0 AGI and one with a $0 refund. I'm betting OP had a non-zero AGI.

The IRS certainly should accept an e-filed return with a $0 refund.

We have also successfully efiled with TT a few times applying the refund to the next years estimated taxes and thus ending up with $0 refund. That’s a fairly common scenario - enough that it affected the IRS stimulus payments online access for a bunch of folks, and the IRS had to update their site.

AGI over $200K thanks to Roth conversions. Again, the only reason I had a $0 refund/amount owed is because I elected to apply our 2020 refund to 2021 estimated taxes. Most years I have an amount owed that I pay on Apr 14th...

All these examples of others getting acceptance almost immediately, like I did for 15+ years, is a little discouraging. I can assure our return is not that complicated. Hopefully I’ll hear from TT within 48 hours.

I eFiled Feb 16th using the Credit Karma website. Return was accepted within a few minutes. Had to wait until yesterday to finish my state as Credit Karma didn't have Ohio ready. It's been accepted. Waiting on my refunds.


I always try to file as soon as possible due to the scammers out there.

I've always applied any refund to next years taxes. Never had a delay.

A little late, but I did happen to check and that return I alluded to above got filed and accepted by today. So a maximum of a few days from file to acceptance.

Did your return include Form 1116 for foreign tax credits? There are several threads on the Bogleheads talking about returns not being accepted due to an issue with Form 1116.

Yes I did. Form 1116 was the last one TT released that applied to me, but they thought it was good to go by Feb 12th.

I had a Form 1116 too.


Please post here if your accepted return had a Form 1116. I plan to call Turbo Tax tomorrow - not looking forward to the long wait on hold.

I've called today and you can't get past the phone tree, I assume there is no support on Sundays (they should just say that instead of hiding behind the phone tree).

9 days waiting, and it's clear Intuit is the hold up, the IRS hasn't seen my return yet.
