amended tax

We received a large 2018 tax refund. We amended the tax because of finding more income that had not been recorded.  we now owe taxes but not sure if that is enough being that we received a large refund. Does the refund need to b e reported in the amended tax? if so where?

amended tax

The refund you received back from the IRS from the original tax return is reported on the federal amended tax return, Form 1040X, on Line 18

Line 18 of Form 1040X should show the amount of your previous overpayment (presumably the amount refunded).  TurboTax will automatically place this amount on line 18 when you begin the amendment.  The calculation will proceed through lines 19 and 20 to determine the amount that you owe with the filing of the amendment. The amount you were refunded (line 18) is subtracted from the amount of your original tax payments paid for the year (line 17) and the difference between that result (line 19) and your newly calculated overall tax liability (line 20) is what you now owe.
