We received a notice from the IRS (actually three letters!) that they have accepted our amended returns from 2007, 2008, and 2009 (taking advantage of the change in the adoption tax credit). Now we just have to wait for them to accept our 2010 amended return. There should not be a problem with 2010 because all we did was roll over the previous year’s adoption tax credit. So we are pretty confident that in four to six weeks (IRS estimate) we should get our $5,460 refund!
We will be using part of the money to send my wife to Spain for a wedding (relative), and the rest will go toward our emergency fund and our car savings fund. I can’t wait to deposit that check!
