How to Know if Your Return Has Been Filed

To file a return in TaxAct, you must complete the filing steps from within your return. To file your TaxAct return, go to our File My Return with TaxAct FAQ.

After you submit your return, you should receive an email within 24-48 hours indicating that your return has been received by TaxAct and submitted to the IRS. Later, you will receive a second e-mail indicating whether your return was accepted or rejected.

It is your responsibility to ensure your return is accepted by the IRS or state agency. If you do not receive an email confirmation or acceptance, you can check the status of your electronically filed returns using the TaxAct E-File and Tax Refund Status webpage. For state information, go to our State Resources webpage and use the information to contact your state.
