Claimed the $600 on taxes

So I filed early and claimed the $600 on my taxes. The other day I got the $600 in the mail. What do I do now?

MY RETURN IS IN PENDING—what does that mean?

 

Did you e-file?  Did you click that big orange button that said “Transmit my returns now?”  If so, your return is now in “pending” on a server.  Do not try to change anything while your return is in pending. If your return is rejected you will be able to make corrections before re-filing.

 

The IRS will not be accepting/rejecting 2020 returns until Friday, February 12, 2021.  You need to watch your emails for the acceptance/rejection notice that may take until mid-February or later to arrive.   And watch your spam folder too.

 

When you e-file your federal return you will receive two emails from TurboTax.  The first one will say that your return was submitted.  The second email will tell you if your federal return was accepted or rejected.  If you e-filed a state return, there will be a third email to tell you if the state accepted or rejected your state return.

 

A state return cannot be accepted until the federal return has been accepted.

We do not know if entering the wrong stimulus amount will delay your refund --- or for how long if it does.   The IRS has not offered any guidance yet on how they will handle returns that have incorrect stimulus amounts entered.  We all just have to wait and see.

I know what to do with all that, I’m specifically talking about the stimulus as I said, I claimed it on my taxes. I have since got that $600 in the mail, how do I go about changing what I filed.

You cannot change it.  You say you filed.  Your return is in pending.  You cannot change it unless it is rejected.   If it is rejected then you can make changes and re-file.   If it is accepted then all you can do is wait for how the IRS processes it.

After reading another post that’s false. I have made the inquiry to have it changed on the 12th.
