Q) Filed taxes feb.12,2013 for 2012 still have not received them.online it says they are being processed it’s been 9 months when I call IRS on hold for ever to hear them say they can’t tell me why, DON’T UNDERSTAND WOULD AMEMDED TAXES HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH IT, THANK YOU
A) I am sorry to hear that you are still waiting for your tax return to be processed.
There are a few reasons why your tax return may still be being processed. One possibility is that the IRS is still waiting for information from you. For example, if you claimed a deduction or credit, the IRS may need to verify that you are eligible for the deduction or credit. Another possibility is that your tax return is being audited. An audit is a review of your tax return by the IRS. Audits can take several months to complete.
If you have amended your tax return, this could also be delaying the processing of your return. Amended tax returns are processed separately from original tax returns. The IRS may also need to verify the information on your amended tax return.
If you are still waiting for your tax return to be processed after 9 months, you can contact the IRS to inquire about the status of your return. You can call the IRS at 1-800-829-1040 or you can visit the IRS website at www.irs.gov.
Here are some tips for contacting the IRS:
- Call during the off-peak hours, such as early in the morning or late at night.
- Be prepared to provide your Social Security number, date of birth, and the tax year of your return.
- Be patient. The IRS is experiencing high call volume and it may take some time to get through to a representative.
I hope this information is helpful. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
