My amended return was accepted 18 weeks ago and I have yet to receive my funds, how long are they expecting me to wait?

If you file your amended return electronically, you can use the Where's My Amended Return? online tool to check the status of your amended return.

if it was mailed figure 6 to 9 months because the IRS is so far behind in reviewing paper returns.

@lukeypenn  Assume that amendments are taking 9-12 months to process.  this is from the IRS website: (note they state 'more than 20' and that has no upper limit)

 

 

Status of Processing Form 1040-X, Amended Individual Tax Return: As of June 25, 2022, we had 2 million unprocessed Forms 1040-X. We are processing these returns in the order received and are working hard to get through the inventory. The current timeframe can be more than 20 weeks instead of up to 16. Please don't file a second tax return or contact the IRS about the status of your amended return. Taxpayers should continue to check Where's My Amended Return? for the most up to date processing status available.

Welcome to the club. I hope you received your money by now. Although mine was accepted, it's now 7 months. Covid is a poor excuse when it comes to the IRS, because if they want to take from us, they'd find workers to load up a van asap and rob us blind. I'm reading here my 2021 amended form was accepted March 10, 2022. It's October 13th. Hello?  There is no way to find out from IRS. The phone number is useless. It only tells me what already know. It was accepted, so where is my money?  The link on their site directs you to a private government page. So, how do I or we know when I'll/we'll get it? I don't  remember adding my routing and account numbers on the amended return. What's up with them?  Is it being mailed? Is it being direct deposited? At least tell us!  It's 7 months. No info. Come on.  Pathetic.  I am tempted to file it again. Did the check get lost in the mail?  IRS is a joke.
