Q) How can I check the status of my amended return?
A) There are a few ways to check the status of your amended return.
- Use the IRS’s Where’s My Amended Return? tool. This tool is available on the IRS website. You will need to enter your Social Security number, date of birth, and ZIP code to track the status of your amended return.
- Call the IRS. You can call the IRS at 1-866-464-2050 to check the status of your amended return. You will need to provide your Social Security number and date of birth when you call.
- Check your mail. The IRS will send you a letter when they have processed your amended return. The letter will tell you the status of your return and any changes that have been made.
It is important to note that amended returns can take up to 16 weeks to process. If you have not received a letter from the IRS within 16 weeks of filing your amended return, you can contact the IRS to check the status of your return.
To check the status of your tax refund, you can use the “Where’s My Refund?” tool on the IRS website. This tool can provide updated information about the status of your refund, including an estimated deposit date. To use this tool, you will need to provide your Social Security number, filing status, and the exact amount of your refund.
