The Internal Revenue Service is far behind on processing returns and refunds for 2019 and 2020 taxes, and a staffing shortage is compounding the problem. The Wall Street Journal reports the IRS is currently reviewing roughly 16 million 2020 returns, because of tax changes in 2020 and in March. The IRS usually sends out most refunds within about three weeks of returns being filed. But this year, the wait has been six to eight weeks for some taxpayers. According to the National Taxpayer Advocate, the IRS is holding roughly 29 million returns for manual processing.
