Recently, the IRS unveiled a tool to aid taxpayers on the status of an amended return. You will need a couple of things to access it:
- Social Security Number
- Date of Birth
- Zip Code
The IRS recommends waiting at least 3 weeks after sending in your paperwork before checking the status.
In my experience, it can take at least 6 weeks to process an amended return but perhaps the IRS is making this a point of emphasis so maybe information will be available in 3 weeks.
If you’re looking for info on your amended return, recommend using this tool – the link is above, and also here: https://www.irs.gov/Filing/Individuals/Amended-Returns-%28Form-1040-X%29/Wheres-My-Amended-Return-1
