Did you file a change of address form with the US Postal Service? If not, then it may be possible that the IRS answered your correspondence and sent it to your old address. Your best bet is to walk into your local IRS office and talk to someone face to face. The IRS representative can trace your Form 8316 in the IRS' database and tell you if it is still being processed. He/she can also update your address on the IRS' records.
