Code 971

I got a code 971 Amended return or claim forwarded for processing 


does anyone know if this means my return is moving forward ? Anyone have any time line info based on their personal experience?

Code 971

Code 971 is a miscellaneous catchall code.


Per the IRS:

It’s taking us more than 20 weeks (instead of up to 16 weeks) to process amended returns. Do not file a second tax return or call the IRS.
