There's always a certain percentage of tax returns that are subject to random review. Hopefully, it will not take until May 2nd, but do not be surprised if it does. And you are definitely not alone. If you search on this forum, you will see other people that are under review. Even if it's only 1/2% of filers that get reviewed, that's a significant number when there are tens of millions of filers.
