Amended Return Thoughts on Length of Time to Process

Hello all and Happy New Year's Eve!

 

I fully understand the potential scope of delays caused by COvid 19 regarding mailed tax returns & amended returns, etc, but I wanted to check in to see if others are still waiting and for how long?

 

Perhaps this will offer some comfort of the fact that I am too, still waiting.

 

My amended return was mailed July 20, 2020

That was 24 weeks, or 164 days, ago.

 

My status on Where is My Amended Return https://sa.www4.irs.gov/wmar/

reads:

Your amended return information is currently unavailable in this application.

 

I guess we can all throw comments and ideas below on what we think about all this!?

 

ps: It's ironic to me this is the first tax filing I did with the online free version since I was having too much trouble with the Mac CD-Rom edition, and I missed the 1095-A Healthcare Marketplace Form that caused the amended requirement.

I received my 2019 tax return as a mailed check today!

(Reminder that prior year's refunds can only be done via mailed check, not direct deposit)

but not on the Where is My Amended Return https://sa.www4.irs.gov/wmar/

Odd, but I'm glad to finally have this resolved!

Last heard it is taking 6 months or more to process ... once they open your envelope and the return is entered into the system the WMAR ? tool will have a progress report.

Update as of Jan. 30, 2021
(28 weeks or just over 6 months from when my amended return was mailed)

 

I received a letter from the IRS!!  stating ...

 

"Thank you for your inquiry as of July 24, 2020.

 

We're working on your account. However, we need an additional 60 days to send you a complete response on what action we are taking on your account. We don't need any additional information from you right now.

 

Thank you for your cooperation."
