Customer Question
I electronically filed my...

I electronically filed my 2017 return using Turbo Tax.3 weeks later the IRS sent me a letter saying they were reviewing my return. I haven't received any further notice from them and can't get a live person on the phone # provided in their letter. It's been 7 weeks since i filed the the return.Do you know how long the process takes?

Accountant's Assistant: The Accountant will know how to help. Is there anything else the Accountant should be aware of?

My wife passed away last year ,so there was a significant loss of reportable income compared to previous years.

Hi. Great Question. Sorry for your loss. It usually takes them 60 days to review the return. I would wait until mid-April to contact them again.
