Earlier this month the IRS had significant technical problems with the ellectronic filing and had to shut it down for a period of time. It is back up and running, but the problems have caused significant delays in the processing of the returns. Unfortunately the IRS has not announced when they expect to be caught up. If you have verification that the return was received, you are OKAY, but have to continue to be patient. I wish I could give you a specific time frame.
Calling the IRS has not been helpful in getting a response to similar questions.
Here are the reports regarding the shut down and restart of the e-filing:
