they should automatically refund the overpayment once they completely process your return provided the check had your name, address, SSN, and tax year on it.   however, this process could take months.  have you tried using the IRS website to see your refund status. I don't think calling the IRS will in any way speed up the refund.

Agreed ... time will tell.   You didn't accidentally send the payment for an  2020 estimate by sending a 2020   1040-ES voucher ?
