Where's My Amended Return?


En Español

“Where’s My Amended Return?” tool provides the status of Form 1040X Amended Tax Return for the current year and up to three prior years.

As a result of the significant increase in the number of amended returns filed this year. The IRS has extended the normal 8 to 12 weeks processing time to 16 weeks. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. It can take up to 3 weeks from the date you mailed it to show up in our system. Please Note: You will not be able to access certain amended returns using this application.

IRS telephone assistors will not be able to provide additional information while your amended return moves through processing.

There is no need to call our toll-free number unless “Where’s My Amended Return?” specifically indicates that you should call.
