Processing times

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm curious from you veterans here if has there ever been a time when processing times at service centers have come down. Now TSC has.a 217 day processing time. Has there been cases that these numbers come down and if so why? Just asking because I filed in March of this yr and don't think it's fair for you who have filed in September not to be processed yet. It's inexcusable. I am ready to wait as long as it takes. Hope you guys get your k1 s approved. I'll keep you posted on my progress. Thanks.
