Hi, I received my refund that was originally specified before the bill was passed for the additional unemployment income refund. Will this portion of my refund come soon?

I was unemployed for 6 months in 2020 and received UI from the NY State govt for that period. When I originally submitted my turbotax return via a paper filing, it had a lower amount than the amount that was specified after the relief bill’s passing. Now when I check the IRS where’s my refund portal, it says that the refund hasn’t been sent yet, but I did receive the initial amount pre-relief bill. Should I be expecting another direct deposit from the IRS? Thank you for your help.

Yes.  If you have filed early before the exclusion, the IRS will recalculate your return for the new 10,200 unemployment exemption for you. There is no need for taxpayers to file an amended return unless the calculations make the taxpayer newly eligible for additional federal credits and deductions not already included on the original tax return.

 

Just keep waiting.  The IRS is sending them out in batches over the summer.

See IRS article May 14, 2021

Hi,

 

Great, thanks for your help. So just to confirm, I should expect a second payment for the unemployment-related return sometime over the next few months?
