    Just checked where’s my amended return and it says

    Please call 800-829-0582, extension 623, between the hours of 7 a.m. and 7 p.m., Monday through Friday. You will need a copy of your amended return.

    Can someone tell me what this means? I called last week and she said my taxes were still processing

    I’ve worked as a tax agent before and unless it’s mailed in, the computer does all the work. The reps just have to press a button to either send a notice or confirm data from submitted documents so I don’t understand why this is so difficult and how they haven’t been able to adjust and incorporate new strategies to get ahead. Imagine next tax season.

    I wish there was something we could do. Their website says they received mine Apr 5 and it has still not been processed and they apologize for any inconvenience, blah blah blah. I was able to speak with 3 reps and a supervisor, supervisor was really patient about the situation but I can honestly say it has done NOTHING to help move things along. I’m the type of person that will drive up there and make sure it gets done myself because this is ridiculous.

    Update!!!! Informed delivery shows my check being delivered today!!!

    #4498553 Reply

    My transcripts show 846 for 9/13. Have not received any refund, my CTC changed to eligible on 9/3 but no pending payments. I am so mad with how the irs is handling this. I worked the entire pandemic and paid taxes but now that it’s time for me to get the money they owe me Everything is at a stand still!

    She gave me a case number and told me to give it 7-10 days and if I haven’t heard anything to call another 1-800 number to get updates on the status of my place in line for a tax advocate.

    I hope this information helps someone, and i am pretty sure this is the process i which the IRS has to go through for anyone who’s amended has been reviewed longer than 16 weeks. So if that’s you, see the list below on how i got a live person on the phone to get this process started.

    #4498533 Reply

    who will (after 7-10 days or longer if they’re backed up) look into WHY my amended return hasn’t been processed. *** It should be noted; during this call, she asked me if my amended return taking this long to be reconciled caused any economic hardship for me….which it very much has since I’m unemployed, backed up in the unemployment system so have zero income and because of the amended not even getting the child tax credit.. so yah, hardship, for sure.

    #4498532 Reply

    they sent the 30 day referral out and naturally, no one processed the paperwork and my advanced child tax credit still says “pending, you will not receive payment at this time.”
    Approximately 36 days later (today) I called the IRS back. She reviewed my case (now 25 weeks deep) and said that since the employee did not respond within the allowed time frame she will now be sending my case to a “tax advocate”…

    #4498531 Reply

    At this point my amended return had been with the IRS for 22 weeks, and because it was longer than 16 weeks, she was able to look up my account and send a “message” more or less, basically it was a 30 day notice/referral to the employee of whom my case was assigned to, explaining the situation and that they had 30 days to process the paperwork and reconcile the account.

    #4498530 Reply

    when I did talk to them I was informed that my amended had not yet been processed.. that while the money end of it was all squared up, the paperwork essentially went to some random’s desk somewhere in the US and because of Covid-19, was probably buried deep in the stacks of unmanageable case loads.

    #4498529 Reply

    I am in this exact situation… amended was received by the IRS on March 27th, as of today its been about 25 weeks. A little over a month ago a friend clued me into a little loop hole on how to get a live person from the IRS on the phone (will include at the end of this post.)


    #4498398 Reply

    I am having the opposite problem. My tax return has been marked as completed as of August 20th and I still haven’t received my money as expected. I called and spoke with an actual person who said this was a glitch that has happened to many. My return is still being processed and to call again in a month if I still haven’t received my tax return.

    “ Your amended return was received on March 26, 2021. However, it has not been processed. We apologize for any inconvenience.”

    filed mine march 26 and it’s been 24 weeks since then. no update and now when i call i hear nothing not even ringing. :/

    #4498039 Reply

    Update!! Transcripts have updated to 846 for 9/13 no change for CTC

    #4497995 Reply

    3/25/21 – Amended received by IRS (tracking by USPS)
    6/25/21 – Amended marked as received but not processed with the message
    I DID NOT CALL according to all the same cases in internet its just an automatic message
    8/27/21 – The system marked my amended as Adjusted
    8/30/21 – check received by mail with the money that I was expected
    As today 9/3/21 in the system the amended has not been market as COMPLETED, but I have my money!

    #4497638 Reply

    My amended return says it was processed and completed. It says I should have received the refund or a letter by Aug 5 and Ive not gotten anything. I amended because the unemployment break made eligible for the EIC. I also did not get July CTC but I did get August? This whole thing is very confusing! Any insight??

    #4497619 Reply

    I got the exact same message, even filed on the same date. Still waiting.

    #4497585 Reply

    I filed before the covid form was ready doh. I bet a lot of people did.

    #4497584 Reply

    Glad I’m not the only one. Thought there might be an issue. Seems they are back logged

    #4497077 Reply

    WMR still only shows an adjustment was made, transcripts show tax adjustment $0 then refund issued but no codes linking to amended taxes, no ACTC. Checked ACTC and it now says “Pending, your eligibility has not been determined. You will not receive advance payments at this time.” Before I was eligible but not receiving payments at this time. We got somewhere with the unemployment refund, but nothing else yet.

    #4497076 Reply

    So we received the $1386 plus $13 interest on 08/18 via direct deposit. Married filed jointly, both hubs and I got separate notices from IRS that our 2020 1040 was updated for changes in laws and refund was issued for overpay of unemployment taxes and/or other tax breaks.
    Nothing about our pending amended taxes that showed a due return of $3000, have not received any ACTC payments yet either. (See next comment)

    #4497075 Reply

    Amend file accepted 4/04, amended it to add a late received w-2, and to update a few things that changed after March as well as to get the unemployment refund. 08/18 transcripts show there was 290 tax adj. $0 8/30 and 846 refund issued $1386 8/18 and 971 notice sent 8/30. WMR shows adjustment made and notice sent but not $ refund info showing. (Read next comment)

    I have the same message as well. Amended on 3/8/21 and still nothing. Called the IRS today because that’s what the take action notice says and they have too many calls currently and I have to call back at a later date.

    I got the same message it’s been so long and I could use the money, we all could! If the IRS needed their money from someone they would have kicked the door in for $25

    #4496122 Reply

    Logged into my account and seen on my transcript that finally my amended return from 04/04 was processed and refund 1/2 of what I thought it was going to be, but hey anything is better than nothing, due to be deposited 08/18. No CTC pending or info, no info on unemployment refund

    Your amended return was received on April 17, 2021.

    **I knew when I didn’t receive my advanced payment for my kids it was because of this still processing even though I received my tax refund. Until this clears up which should take another month tops, then I will get all back months and the new months of Advance Payment. SUNTIL THIS CLEARS NO ONE GETS THE ADVANCED PAYMENT FOR THEIR KIDS BUT YOU WILL RECEIVE ALL PREVIOUS MONTHS AS BACK PAY ONCE APPROVED.

    I also amended my return on January. Days same thing since 2 months

    #4495216 Reply

    No amended return, no advanced CTC. Get your shit together IRS. Doesn’t take them long to take your refund or demand a payment but they can hold our funds for as long as they want. Rediculous

    #4494991 Reply

    According to many chats across internet it’s because they are past the 16 weeks and its some automatic message. I’m in the same spot, I amended on February 22 2021.

    No unemployment refund, no CTC, no update to my transcripts.

    #4494065 Reply

    I Amended and Filed 3/26. I finally got a rep and he stated its still processing and I received the message because it had gone beyond the 16 week processing time. “I don’t want to say double the time because that will be 32 weeks, and it SHOULDN’T take that long”, but it is still processing and I don’t have additional information at the time.

    #4493971 Reply

    I amended mine on the 3rd of April, and I got that message last week. Crossing my fingers here.

    This can’t be for real

    I amended my 2020 return April 9 2021 and it has been received. It still says it’s being processed. I didn’t get ctc for my kids and I’m wondering if amending return is why.

    #4493585 Reply

    I was told I would have information in 30 days. And of course no CTC until my amended taxes are finished. I’m so over the irs’ BS

    #4493322 Reply

    Amended mine on the 16th and just checked. It says it was received on the 17th and is being processed. My WMR also changed from “still being processed” to “is being processed”.

    I’ve been waiting since 2/11 and just realized TT removed our daughter so I added her back and amended. Hopefully soon.

    #4493288 Reply

    “your amended return was received on March 26, 2021. However, it has not been processed. We apologize for any inconvenience.” same thing. told it could be longer. I called and asked how many years could it be, the agent said it wouldn’t take over a year BUT “WHO KNOWS” This is a sad system.

    #4493280 Reply

    I also amended my taxes march 9th got this message have not been able to get anyone at that extension but waiting for child tax credit, unemployment refund and amended taxes because i didn’t get all the stimulus payments

    #4493073 Reply

    So apparently it’s because they are past the 16 weeks. I’m so sick of the IRS
