They will mail a check to the address on your return.
Go by the actual 1040X. Line 18 should be your original refund amount and line 22 should be your additional refund. If you paid on your original return it will be on line 16. If there is an amount owed with the amendment, it will be on line 20.
And....just so you know....it takes the IRS about six months--sometimes longer -- to process an amended return, so do not expect quick results. Use a mailing service like certified mail to send it so you will have a tracking record that it was received, since you will have a long wait.
