Millions of other tax payers are in the same boa.t, if that makes you feel any better. As of June 25th, 2021 the IRS had a backlog of 16.7 million 2019 and 2020 individual tax returns that require MANUAL processing by agency employees. Some of these are paper returns and others were suspended during electronic processing and need further review.
Unfortunately, there is not much that a taxpayer or their tax preparers can do about these delays. But the are reasons for some hope! The IRS expects to complete the processing of the 2019 Forms 1040 that were mailed in sometime this summer. And now that new returns are trickling into the IRS at a slower rate than during the filing season.
Please be patient and DO NOT CALL THE IRS or AMERICAN TAX SERVICE as there is nothing we can do to hurry up the process.
