Amended Tax return

I amended my tax return due to change of dependents.. If I mail it today... how soon average time should I receive the money .? which is being electronically deposited to the account that the normal refund was deposited to.... and Which papers is it that I need to send? any other documents?
  • i mailed my return 5 weeks ago and still its not showing up why is this
  • I sent in my amended return on April 27th and it still doesnt show in the system either!  I mailed it to the correct address and everything!  Where is my refund?  I call and it sends me through an automated system too, and it says there is no record still.
  • @kelly and might, i sent the past 3 years amendments in the 30th of april and the system tells me they got 2 the 6th of may and the other one the 8th of may
  • ugh, I sent mine in April 27th, so it had to have been received by the first week of May, and I still get "no record found"...
Sorry they don't do direct deposits for amended returns.  They only mail you a check.  It may take 8-12 weeks to process.

    People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

    1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
    2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
    3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
    4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
    5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
