Back in April I mentioned that my efiling was rejected because someone else had filed with my SSN. I was advised to wait for the IRS to contact me about this. So far they haven't.

Have I waited long enough? Should I contact the IRS or wait some more?

Did you file your return on paper? If so, have you received any refund claimed on that return?

Yes, mailed it in. But no refund was due. No taxes were paid and none were owed to the feds.

Then you may not hear anything. If your taxes wouldn't change by eliminating your personal exemption, then the IRS may not bother to look into the situation.

However, if you filed the identity theft form, that should definitely generate correspondence from the IRS.

I didn't file it. One of this board's pros (I don't recall who) recommended that I just paper file and that the IRS would contact me when it saw the second occurrence of my SSN. So that's what I did.

Do you recommend filing the ID theft form now?

I'd do this.

Imagine that the other filer claimed (and received) a large refund based on bogus data.

A refund that is linked to your SSN.

Now imagine that the IRS wants their money back.....
