Amendments always take more time since they have to be mailed in. In fact, they can take up to 16 weeks. Please see below Please see URL below:
Here is a FAQ site from IRS on amended returns
These are fairly new additions to the IRS website. Just a few years ago you couldn't get much information on your amended return. We used to have to tell you that it could take up to 16 weeks, and then give you their phone # (which is(###) ###-####
So having even this information better is much more than we used to get.
I said "Having EVEN this much information" because that last I heard, you would only see the 1040X Amended return information when they were getting ready to mail out the refund.
I don't think they put them in there as "pending", but you're free to check everyday to see if they post something about it for you.
You mentioned something about 2012 tax return? (or was that just a typo?) That your spouse was not responsible??
I'm more than happy to help you with that issue, but I need more information for that part of your question.
If you have any questions, please post them here and I'll be notified.
