Amended Return but have not mailed it in yet. Should I wait?

I efiled my tax return on February 17th.  It was accepted/approved.  TurboTax estimated that I would receive my refund on March 5th via direct deposit.  A few days later, I received a 1099 form.  I knew this form needed to be submitted, so I went on TurboTax and amended my return.  It was accepted and now it says Ready to Mail.  I was told that I should not mail it in until after I receive my refund.  Is this true?  Will I still receive my refund via direct deposit?  Now, my TurboTax account says Pending and there is no longer an estimated date that I will receive the refund.  So, should I mail in the amended return or should I wait?  Thank you.  (Also, I went on the IRS website to track my refund, but it says “the information you entered doesn’t match our records” which is weird because it didn’t say that before I amended the return…)

You should not submit the amended return until the original return has been processed through IRS.  Wait until you receive the refund then submit the Amended return.  You can Amend your return electronically or submit a paper return.
