How long does it take to get your refund back if you had to amend ?

It can take up to 12 weeks for the IRS to receive and process your amended tax return. Generally you should wait until your original return has been accepted to avoid any confusion for the IRS. Once you have completed your amended return, you will need to print out the return and mail the amended return in with any supporting documents. You can track your refund for the amended return by clicking here: https://www.irs.gov/filing/individuals/amended-returns-form-1040-x-/wheres-my-amended-return-1
