TurboTax cannot legally contact the IRS on your behalf.  TurboTax is a software company which sells tax preparation software.  It is not a paid tax professional such as a CPA, EA or Tax Attorney.

Does the IRS website for the status of an amended tax return indicate the refund was issued? - https://www.irs.gov/filing/wheres-my-amended-return

If so, the refund would have been mailed as a check to the address on the amended tax return.

Since you have not received the refund check go to this IRS website to report a lost tax refund - https://www.irs.gov/faqs/irs-procedures/refund-inquiries/refund-inquiries-0

 

Call the IRS: 1-800-829-1040 hours 7 AM - 7 PM local time Monday-Friday
When calling the IRS do NOT choose the first option re: "Refund", or it will send you to an automated phone line.
So after first choosing your language, then do NOT choose Option 1 (refund info). Choose option 2 for "personal income tax" instead.
Then press 1 for "form, tax history, or payment".
Then press 3 "for all other questions."
Then press 2 "for all other questions."
- When it asks you to enter your SSN or EIN to access your account information, don't enter anything.
- After it asks twice, you will get another menu.

Press 2 for personal or individual tax questions.
Then press 4 for all other inquiries
It should then transfer you to an agent.

You have to call at 7 am on the nose or in the evening. Have your tax information available and be prepared to hold.

No one can say for sure. Hopefully it will be soon but I would say you should have it by December

Treasury has halted refund checks because they are out of money.

Once the debt limit bill is passed and signed, your check can be issued.

Mine is the same. N calling irs was useless. But I was able to look up my tax transcript was sent for processing 9/14. The where’s my tool is not correct. I think it’s still using original stuff Bc nothing shows an amended return being issued yet.  That being said it’s well past the 20 weeks for processing we r in week 25 now for me. I’m hoping at this point before Xmas. Getting ridiculous. Fix your tool!

"Fix your tool"     That is not a TurboTax tool.   It is an IRS tool.   TurboTax cannot "fix" it.

 

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:

I realize this. What I was saying is not to base it off that tool Bc it’s inaccurate and I filed it back in April for myself so it’s been at this point 25 weeks which is past what is stated. I also spoke to irs this morning and they said it has yet to even be assigned to anyone and to give another 30 days at this point I’m just hopeful it’s by Xmas

Amended returns are not directly deposited they are sent via check. I got that one in august it is the unemployment that’s what irs told me last two times I called. No matter if your account is on file amended returns are never directly deposited.

Oh Ok.  See that happened to me too.  I thought it was unemployment because it was from the state and direct deposit.  According to these other responses, only federal mails you a paper check so I assumed that Im still waiting on a check.

Ok thanks.  So now I just wait patiently for a paper check.  I received my unemployment via DD already.
