A month ago I read a news story about the IRS having a backlog of 35 million returns, including paper returns. They are under-funded and under-staffed, and have the extra work involved with Covid relief payments.
I filed a paper return on May 4, and check my online account weekly. So far all I get is a message that my return hasn’t been processed.
In your online account, if you click on “IRS operations and services” and then “Filed an individual tax return” you will see a detailed explanation of how they are dealing with the backlog.
