When will you receive your refund? The answer depends on how you filed your return. The IRS should issue your refund check within six to eight weeks of filing a paper return. If you chose to receive your refund through direct deposit, you should receive it within a week to ten days. If you filed your return using e-file and requested a refund check, your refund should be issued in two or three weeks.
Where's my amended return? The "Where's My Amended Return?" tool on the IRS website provides the status of Form 1040X Amended Tax Return for the current year and up to three prior years. You can generally expect your amended return to be processed up to 12 weeks from the date the IRS receives it. There are certain amended returns that cannot be accessed using the IRS tool.
