IRS gave a refund more a few dollars than I asked for. How do I account the difference when amending this return ?

I need to amend my tax return. For some reason, IRS deposited a few dollars more than I asked for.

How do I adjust this difference when I amend this return?

That was probably for interest.  Just ignore it.  It will be taxable income next year.

That was my first thought.  After some internet search, my understanding is that IRS has to pay interest if the refund comes later than 45 days after the original deadline of 4/15. My refund came in mid March. So I don't think they need to pay any interest.

But since the difference is only a few bucks, I guess I can safely ignore it.
