We handle financial matters for a friend in a nursing facility. The tax accountant did the 1040 this year as normal. efiled as normal. The checking account is unchanged from previous years and according to the tax person that is correct. The concern -- it has been 3 weeks and the tax payment has not been removed form the checking account.

We now need to file a 1040X for a refund. Tax accountant says wait until the charge hits the bank before files the 1040X which makes sense.

How long do we wait until we take some action on the failure of the funds to be transferred to the IRS? And what/how do we take action to get the funds to the IRS? (I am assuming the IRS will know it does not have its money, but probably won't know its systems are the cause.)
