How long does it take to get a refund if you file an injured spouse form

According to the IRS instructions for Form 8379 - Injured Spouse Allocation:

Generally, if you file Form 8379 with a joint return on paper, the time needed to process it is about 14 weeks (11 weeks if filed electronically). If you file Form 8379 by itself after a joint return has been processed, the time needed is about 8 weeks.

No two returns are alike, and many different factors can affect the timing of your refund after the IRS receives your return for processing.

For some taxpayers, the identity-protection safeguards implemented by the IRS in recent years may account for longer wait times.

Other things that can delay your refund include but are not limited to:

Even though the IRS issues 9 out of 10 tax refunds within 21 days, it's possible your return may require additional review and take longer to process.

Also, if you chose direct deposit, your financial institution will need another day or two to post the refund to your account, so keep that in mind.

@tiffanyallen538 You are posting a new question on a 2 year old thread--not the best way to get help.  But you say you filed an injured spouse form sometime in June.  It takes at least 14 weeks (or longer) for the IRS to process an injured spouse form.  If you want to call the IRS 800-829-1040

Ot can take at least 14 weeks for an injured spouse return to be processed, and several users who have called the IRS this tax season have reported that they were told it is taking even longer this year.  Sorry.
