How do I know if the IRS has recieved my return?

I filed at an H&R Block office over a week ago.  I was told I would receive an email from the IRS letting me know they received my return.  I still have not received any emails from the IRS.  Using H&R Block's E-File Status check, and the IRS' Where's my Refund check, it appears my return is no where to be found.  I have asked my tax preparer about this, but she has not been very helpful.  How can I check to see if the IRS truly received my return?

Welcome to the Community. Have you tried checking the status of your return on the IRS.gov website? https://www.irs.gov/refunds

Re: How do I know if the IRS has recieved my return?

I tried checking both the H&R Block site and the IRS site.  Both sites could not find anything on my return.  I had to contact another H&R Block office and I spoke with a different tax preparer.  I showed her my paperwork, and she was able to look up the return in the H&R Block system.  She discovered the return had been prepared, but it had not been sent to the IRS.  I have contacted my original preparer, and I have informed her what I learned.  I'm still waiting for confirmation that my return has been sent.
