After you file

No problem. That is correct. IRS takes longer to process and approve amended returns because they are checking them against their system and information and implementing all of the changes and adjusting the numbers as needed. They say it can take up to 16 weeks but it also depends on how busy they are and how much of a backlog they may or may not have. For CA refunds it can take up to 4 weeks for regular refunds and up to 4 months which is also 16 weeks for amended returns for the same reason as the IRS.
