Did they audit you or just send you a letter stating they needed to verify your identity?
1. Audit wrap-up time can vary depending on the type of audit it is and the complexity of the issue at hand since they have to check your financial information and make sure you reported the correct amount of tax. Once the IRS completes the audit process, then they issue your refund. Only they can provide you a time-frame on when that will happen though. You can see more details on audits here IRS Audits
2. If they sent you a letter requesting more information to verify your identity, possibly Letter 4883cC or 5071C; then that can take up to nine weeks to process. You can also find that information here Understand Your 4883C Letter
- If after nine weeks you don't hear anything, I'd recommend you call them at the IRS tax refund hotline at 800-829-4477, Monday - Friday, 7:00 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. Or, call the 24-hour assistance number at 800-829-1040.
