If you filed an amended federal return and wish to know the status of the return, you can visit the IRS website's Where's My Amended Return? page.
The Amended Return look-up is only available for the current year and the three prior years. The IRS does not send a confirmation when the amended return is received. You can check the Where's My Amended Return? link to see if the IRS has received the return and to track the status of the return.
You will need to know:
- Social Security Number of the primary taxpayer (first person listed) on the return
- Date of Birth of primary taxpayer
- Zip Code listed on tax return
Please allow at least three weeks from date of mailing to check for the status of the amended return. The amended return can take up to 16 weeks to be processed.
