I amended a 1040 return since client originally claimed unemployment income. The removal of the unemployment income caused the client to qualify for Earned Income Tax Credit. Client still has not received refund. She asked me to check the efile acknowledgement. In looking through the software, I don't see the acknowledgement only the original efile acknowledgement. Any ideas where I can find that?
Theyre just too much of a mess in there, Im waiting for all the smoke to clear before sending any amendments for returns that are impacted by the UI exclusion adjustment IRS will be making.
You did the right thing, filing the amended return when it includes EIC not previously claimed. If original returns are taking 12 to 14 weeks, I would expect amended returns to take 16 to 24 weeks. Here is the link to check the status, but it probably won't show up there for a while:
