Filed an amended return for 2008 back in April. Moved in Oct., but the letter from the IRS stating that the amended return was processed and the check to follow shortly was fowarded to the new current address. Since the USPS is not suppossed to foward checks, I called to update my info so as to get my money. I was then informed that the funds were already deposited. But it did not go into any of my accounts because I never signed up for direct deposit.
I know where my money went from the IRS. However, I do not know if that bank that got it still has it, because there has been no response by email. I tried calling, but the bot operator said that the bank was closed, and kindly call back during normal business hours (which was not disclosed by the bot). I called at 1535 CT, and the bank is located in CA, which means it was 1335 PT. Even if it was lunchtime, what bank closes the entire department during business hours??
Anyway, now I'm trying to figure out who should I go after first if my money turned into vaporware.
apologize if this is a little whiney, but it will explain if my user name gets changed to Dis1pissed or something.

Btw, we've got the same addiction. I'm willing to spend some good money on the perfect bike bag. Unfortunately my addiction took me to acornbags.com. The problem is that they won't ship outside of the continental US. It would be the perfect addition to my Raleigh One-way.
Do you know who cashed the cheque? Or do you just know which bank accepted and paid out the cheque?
I know the bank that the IRS sent the money to. I do not know if the bank still has it, or if they sent on to as yet to be determined party. I've sent emails to the bank in question, as well as to the original tax prep service. (The amended return was done by another tax prep service.)
One year we had a hard time w/ our return because it got credited to someone else's acct. The IRS kept coming after us while they waited for the guy they credited it to to pay the amount that he owed. It took a year or so to settle. I don't think he ever paid but they let us off the hook. Not that we belonged on a hook, we paid. My F-i-L said we were lucky it was a living person and not the estate of somebody who'd croaked that year. Thanks for the pleasant thought!
