Get your taxes done using TurboTax

You need to contact the IRS if your tax return is still being processed for almost 60 days. The IRS is reviewing your return because there is something in your return that they want to verify or look at more closely.  It still does not automatically mean that you are being audited, but it does mean the IRS is taking a closer look at your return.

This review can take a day or two or it can take much, much longer. If your return remains in the “being processed” status for more than 21 days, you may contact the IRS directly and ask for additional information. The IRS requests that you wait 21 days before contacting them but, you are past this waiting period.

The number you can use to call the IRS is 1-800-829-1040. The hours you can call are from 7 AM - 7 PM local time Monday-Friday. Instructions for the phone selections are as follows:
• Choose your language preference
• Select option 2 for "personal income tax"
• Select 1 for "form, tax history, or payment"
• Select 4 "for all other questions."
• Select 2 "for all other questions."  You will then be transferred to an agent.
