    I prepared my taxes at the end of April (I filed an extension) and asked the wife to take it to the post office to get a stamp for it. My whole return as about 15 or 16 pages, the envelope was about 3/4" thick!

    I just found the receipt yesterday from when she went to the post office. All she bought was a single stamp for it from a vending machine. Now I am positive this envelope would of taken 2-3 stamps as it was so thick plus I did my taxes on my computer and i have VERY heavy weight paper.

    Now this was a couple weeks ago, can I safely assume they took it with one stamp since it has not been returned? I have been checking the wheres my refund every couple days just to hope I see a received or processing on it but nothing. I know it can take weeks for them to process it though.

    Is there any way to even be sure that they got it?

    It might not be in the system yet, but if you call the IRS at 1-800-829-1040, they would at least be able to tell you if it's showing up.
