Why wasn't my return sent to CRA on time 2 years in a row?

I have filed using Turbo Tax 4 years in a row now. I noticed this year I didn't get my return back, despite filing before the deadline. When I checked my status with CRA it was marked as Not Received. I then checked the status of my return from 2017 and that one was NOT RECEIVED as well. 

I finished the process for both years using the online software. So, I don't understand why they are not fully submitting. I also don't understand how Turbo Tax can bill me 2 years in a row but not send me an update that my returns have been sitting in limbo on their site. It now appears that I am filling late for both years in a row due to this fault of the site. 

Is there a way you can verify that my last two returns have been filed now? I am still un-trusting of the site now. I also am wondering if I am eligible for any kind of compensation since I am going to be getting hit with late fee's at the fault of Turbo Tax. 

If nothing is going to be done, then this will be the last time I ever use Turbo Tax services. This is the worst filing experience I have ever had.

People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
