Zillow Advice: Approval Process - Stamped tax return http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Stamped-tax-return/508091/ Zillow Advice | Zillow Real Estate The IRS processes mailed ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Stamped-tax-return/508091/ The IRS processes mailed statements with less speed than they do electronically-filed statements. &nbsp;If it's been 8 weeks, you are on the long end of the window it typically takes to get it processed. &nbsp;<br/><br/>Calling the IRS directly is an exercise in futility, because the agents cannot tell you where in the process it is, until it's actually been processed. &nbsp;It sure would be nice if when the IRS processing center (there are several of them) would actually image in the return and then keep some sort of stats as to where it is in their pipeline, vs. just simply saying the standard "6 to 8 weeks". &nbsp;<br/><br/>The Taxpayer Advocate only works if you can somehow prove serious economic hardship as a result of not getting the returns filed. &nbsp;Since your local IRS office took it in, that unless it was lost in their system, it should be filed very soon. &nbsp;Good luck!<br/><br/><br/><br/> Thu, 22 Aug 2013 16:49:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Stamped-tax-return/508091/ 2013-08-22T16:49:00Z I have directed clients to ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Stamped-tax-return/508091/ I have directed clients to the Taxpayer Advocate Service (TAS) for the IRS. &nbsp;They have been able to provide assistance and even expedite the review of a tax return. &nbsp;Explain your situation and see what they can do. &nbsp;They can be reached at 877-777-4778. <br/><br/>Best of luck..... &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Thu, 22 Aug 2013 15:16:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Stamped-tax-return/508091/ 2013-08-22T15:16:00Z We didn't owe money infact ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Stamped-tax-return/508091/ We didn't owe money infact we are owed money by the IRS.<br/>Tried calling several times.
