Payment Information on Amended Returns

Notice: Historical Content
This is an archival or historical document and may not reflect current law, policies or procedures.

An amended return can result in a delayed stimulus payment if the amended return is received before the stimulus payment is issued. In this situation, the stimulus payment will be issued, if applicable, once the amended return has been processed.

Due to the high volume of amended returns received, please allow 12-16 weeks for the IRS to process your amended return before making any inquiries about your return and stimulus payment.
