The IRS has stated that they are behind on processing the payments and are expected to finish up next week. When this is processed they will apply the payments to the taxpayer's account based on the date that the estimate was requested. If the amount is not withdrawn by April 30th, 2021 please contact the IRS at 888-353-4537.

Please go to the Electronic Filing Status site and verify the return was electronically filed with estimates. This can be done by searching for the Return ID and making sure there is a yellow "est" icon. You can then click on the icon to verify the date of the estimate.
