12-16 week processing time for amended returns submitted during the government shutdown

Today I called the IRS regarding a client’s amended tax return. The agent told me that due to backups caused by the government shutdown amended returns will take 12 to 16 weeks to process. So if you filed an amended return it might not show up in the IRS system until January 2014!
