    not sure I understand, you say you file mid January and immediately amended it? this will probably take longer to clear up before you get any refund
    also I assume the only change you needed to make was your direct deposit account number, filing an amendment has no place to indicate the routing number and account number of a direct deposit

    I’m not sure that should have filed an amended return if everything on it was correct in the first place other than your account information. If your bank account was closed, the funds would automatically be returned to the IRS and they, in turn, would send you a paper check. That can take anywhere from 3 to 6 weeks. Amended returns take anywhere from 8 to 12 weeks to process.
