With the virus going on , when will they let out more info for those who are amending their return . What I mean is I see so many post about returns but not once did they ever mentioned anything about amended returns. Like I've been waiting for mines for awhile now . Hoping it would go by sooner with this virus going on . But instead they only give out info for returns . What about those who did an amended return? Do we still have to wait long for it to be adjusted ? Even when I check "where's my return" for the e-file I originally filed says they receive it and checking on it . But I already received my return from the original e-file , then I had to amend to add my daughter becuase no one was claiming her. So what is really going on ??
Three weeks after mailing your amended return, you can start tracking it at the IRS Where's My Amended Return? tracking tool.
Please allow at least 16 weeks for the IRS to process your amended return.
You have to wait the full 16 weeks before they will even look into it to see if their was an issue with your amended return. The wheres my amended return is the best option to verify the status of your amendment. It took about 2-3 weeks before it showed they received it and then the full 16 for an update to show they had processed it. After that it took about a month to receive the notice that the made the adjustments and was sending my check. They do have tax advocates that work directly with you, if you request one and can prove you have a need for someone to help you thru the process or have an economic hardship.
Actually as of today they "adjusted" my amended return . So now I'm just waiting for it to be completed . Says within 3 weeks I'll receive a notice about the adjustment . They received it Feb 6, 2020 and adjusted it on March 27, 2020 (: it only took 7 weeks , which is not bad at all .
