If you can’t find your TaxAct e-file status online, there are two reasons:
– You might enter the wrong social security number. The entered number should be your primary SSN for the return, which is specified on the 1040. You can’t locate the return by the dependent or secondary taxpayer.
– You might not complete the online filing process. Perhaps you have progressed but not submitted it electronically. Also, you might unknowingly select to a paper file rather than an electronic file. If you submit successfully, you might see a screen showing that your return is submitted.
