Amended Tax Return
Posted September 15, 2018
The IRS has this handy tool to ensure your amended tax return was filed properly and the approximate date of refund deposit. Here’s some information to help manage your expectations- most amended tax returns take 10-12 weeks to process. Because of tax fraud in the past, any large refunds or unusual refunds might be flagged, and increase processing time to 3-4 months. Yes, Months.
ExPat or ex-patriate amended tax returns can easily be 6-8 months. Yikes.

Be prepared for the “It’s in the system, but we can’t give you a date” response. Very frustrating! Also, each state has a different tracking system. The following links are from our Track Your Refund page, but they will get you close to the information you need.
