I mailed my amended return in early September 2020. It was for year 2018. When I checked the status on, it says status is unavailable. It says processing is up to 16 weeks. It has now been close to 6 months. I called the IRS at the end of January this year. The person said not to send in another copy of the return. It is now a month later. Does anyone know if it is taking more than 6 months to process an amended return? Or do you think it got lost in the mail and I should send it in again?

Thank you, Ken
