I still don't see where you said that the IRS rep found the e-filed return

I think you sort of have to read between the lines. From post 100531:

I called the IRS this morning and after 45 minutes they told me that there was no record of the payment or the authorization to debit my bank account

So the IRS didn't say they didn't have a record of receiving the efiled return, just that they didn't see where a debit was made or authorized.

But I'm with Phil on this. I'm an AARP/TaxAide efiler, and sent in some 400 volunteer-prepared returns this year. When you send in an efile, you get an acknowledgment back from the IRS that the return has been accepted, typically within just a few hours. Those are the words Phil is waiting to hear - that your CPA received an acknowledgment, from the IRS, that your return was accepted as filed. The question of whether or not an ACH debit was authorized, as OP's CPA says, is another matter. One thing at a time.
