I already filed 2020 but I paid taxes on my 2020 unemployment benefits. I am aware that IRS is automatically refunding unemployment taxes paid in 2020, but I have not yet received this refund.

I have not received this refund yet. Should I continue to wait?  File an amended return?  How long should I wait?  Thanks

it's going to take all summer for the IRS to do all this.

The IRS began to send out the additional refund checks for tax withheld from unemployment in May.  The refunds are being sent out in batches—starting with the simplest returns first.   If you are eligible for the extra refund for federal tax that was withheld from your unemployment the IRS will be sending you an additional refund sometime during the next several months.  TurboTax cannot track or predict when it will be sent.  The IRS has not provided a way for you to track it, so all you can do is wait for the refund to arrive.
