  • Depends on when you file your amended tax return. You don't just automatically get it back. You either amend your 08 tax return or wait until you file your 09 return. We bought our home in August. I amended our return two weeks later and got our check direct deposited 3 weeks later.

  • It took my brother a couple of months before he got his.

  • We filed our amended return right after we closed. It took just under two months. Our preparer told us it would be two months but it wasn't quite that long.

  • Why would you file an amended 08 return? I thought the 08 you had to pay back eventually, but the 09 was a freebie as long as you stayed int he house 3 yrs.
