I amended my 2021 tax return, filed it electronically through Intuit/TurboTax on February 25th, 2022. I mailed the forms for the state tax return, even though I was not supposed to be receiving a refund, on 2/26/22.
When using the link on the IRS website, “Where’s my refund?” and also calling the 800 number directly, both said they were unable to help me.
I am waiting on a refund of $2038.
Even during “normal” times it takes about four months for the IRS to process an amended return. During the pandemic and due to the severe backlog at the IRS it is taking much longer—six months or more for many amended returns. Do not expect quick results from amending. When the IRS issues a refund for an amended return it will be by check. They do not make direct deposits for refunds for amended returns. You can watch for information here:
