You can cancel at any time so no worries about getting stuck.
— “Where’s my refund?” tracker: After the IRS has accepted your e-filed tax return, it takes around 3 weeks for your refund to arrive (if you have one coming). And for most of us, the wait can seem like forever. Fortunately, TurboTax has a refund tracker tool where you can see the status of your refund (accepted, approved, etc.).
— File an IRS tax extension: If you need more time in completing your tax return this year then you can file a tax extension with TurboTax. When approved (usually within hours of requesting for it), you’ll have an extra 6 months — until October 15th — to file.
