Amended returns take 16 weeks in normal years.  Due to COVID and tax law changes, the IRS is far behind a normal year.  All you can do is wait for them to get to your amended return.   No one can tell you when that might happen.

Even during “normal” times it takes about four months for the IRS to process an amended return.  During the pandemic and due to the severe backlog at the IRS it is taking much longer—six months or more for many amended returns.  Do not expect quick results from amending.  When the IRS issues a refund for an amended return it will be by check.  They do not make direct deposits for refunds for amended returns.  You can watch for information here:
