After you file

Because of the COVID-19 issues, the IRS has postponed processing paper returns, including the Form 1040X amended tax returns.  No specific date has been given for when the IRS will begin processing paper returns again, but only that paper returns will be processed once processing centers are able to reopen. 


At this time there is no way to predict when the returns will be reported on the IRS Get My Payment website.


The IRS instructs that if you already have filed via paper but it has not yet been processed, do not file a second tax return or write to the IRS to inquire about the status of your return or your economic impact payment.
