Where's My Amended Return?

As a tax professional, how many times do your clients ask, "Where's my Amended Return?" Because an Amended Return may take up to 12 weeks for the IRS to process, tax professionals hear this question quite often. An on-line resource is now available to respond to this question. Approximately 3 weeks after amended returns are mailed, status updates are now available on the IRS web site.
The taxpayer needs their Social Security Number, date of birth, and zip code to obtain information from the site. The “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. The application does not allow you to check on restricted interest claims or tentative carryback claims.
