IRS processing time
Not sure if anyone has any insights, suggestions, etc but over 8 months ago my CPA amended our 2015 and 2016 returns. The reason was recent clarification from the IRS about taxes on a portion of our income led to a lower tax burden. The CPA included an explanation for the change with the amended return.
The IRS confirmed receipt in early June. 2015 was processed and the refund received by September. However, the 2016 return is still in processing after 8 long months. Both the CPA and I have called several times with very little info given.
I'm not in a huge rush for the refund but this seems unnecessarily long and costly for the govt, after all they will pay interest on this refund as well.
Hoping someone had some insight or suggestions. Thanks.
