I mailed in my amended tax return about a month ago and haven't heard anything yet. When will I hear from the IRS and will my amended amount get deposited into my account

How long does it take to do an amended tax return? And do they directly deposit the amount in my account like the first refund or will they mail a check? If they mail the check my address has changed so I will need it sent to my current address

The IRS will not notify you when the amended return is received by the IRS.  It will take approximately 3 weeks after mailing the amended tax return for the status to be available on the IRS amended return website - https://www.irs.gov/filing/individuals/amended-returns-form-1040-x-/wheres-my-amended-return-1

It will take the IRS about 16 weeks or longer to process the amended tax return.  Any refund will be mailed to you as a check.
