I am amending this year's federal tax return that I filed yesterday. Turbotax is asking me to pay for "due" amount even though I am supposed to receive a refund. Help!

If I follow Turbotax's process and connect my checking account to "pay" for the "due" amount, will I cause duplication? Meaning I pay X amount from my checking account and that X amount also gets deducted from my federal refund.

Which return shows a refund?  The amount TurboTax calculates on the amended return should be the net- refund/owe from original return plus/minus new tax amount.

If you just filed the original return yesterday then wait for the IRS to fully process the original return and you have the original refund in hand.  Only then should you file the amended return.

 

Look at the form 1040X …

Column A should have the figures from the original return, Column C the corrected figures and Column B the differences between the other 2 which needs an explanation on page 2 of the form 1040X.

If you completed it correctly you will see an entry on either line 16 OR 18:

On line 16 should be the amount you paid with your original return. If you paid nothing already then this line should be zero.

On line 18 should be the amount of your original refund you received.  If you have not received your refund yet then you need to wait for it.  If the refund changes from what you expected then this line must reflect that change.

Then you will see your extra refund on line 22 OR  the new balance due you need to pay on line 20.
