Taxpayers have reported waiting 10 to 12 months, and in some cases longer, to receive their ERC refunds. The IRS states that taxpayers should not file a second return claiming the same refund, as that will likely result in even longer delays while investigating duplicate claims. Forms 941 filed electronically had an IRS processing time within one month. Original 941 forms filed on paper are generally processed within 3 to 4 months.
If your originally filed Form 941 application hasn't been reimbursed, then it's time to contact the IRS or ask a professional to review Form 941 for potential errors in your claim. Originally, it was expected that, after filing an amended payroll report, the IRS would issue a refund within six weeks to six months. Even this wide window now seems optimistic. You should now plan a delivery time of nine to twelve months.
