I spoke to a live agent Tuesday and she advised me that an adjustment in my favor had been completed Monday. Then she said it was mandatory for them to advise 4-6 additional weeks for my actual refund. I pray it still comes DD and doesn't take that long. Because I mailed my amended return back in February. And requested advocate assistance 5x and only actually got there help 3x.
@ITZMIE Sorry they only mail checks for Amended return refunds, no Direct Deposit.
See 1040X instructions page 19 line 22
It says.....You will receive a check for any refund due to you. A refund on an amended return can’t be deposited directly to your bank account.
My original return had a refund but I made a clerical error and had to amend my return. The amended return shows I owe the IRS. Does this mean that the original return refund amount I was to receive is no longer correct and I now owe the IRS? I'm confused on this process because I was due a refund for child tax credit
Was your original return filed and accepted?
You will still get the refund from the first original return. In fact you should not even amend until the first return has fully processed and you get the first refund.
Then the amended return is only for the difference you get back or owe. I think the cover sheet shows what the original return WOULD have been if you did it right the first time.
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.
If you have a tax due, do not send the 1040V. Just include a check with the 1040X. Ignore the 1040V. That is for the original return or what the original return would have been if it didn’t need correcting. Don’t pay the amount on the 1040V. Pay the amount on the actual 1040X.
Can you provide more details about the adjustment you are waiting on? There are over 250 replies in this thread so it is unclear what your question is.
Where's My Amended Return? Use this if you are looking for the status of an amended return.

I mailed my 2017 amended return on 3/28/20....I sent it certified so I know they received it on 4/1/20. Because of COVID they acknowledged on 7/20/20 that they received it on 4/1/20 (over 3 months from when they actually received it). On 7/23/20 they asked me to call them about the return, turns out they just wanted to let me know it wouldn't be processed within the 16 weeks they normally quote 🙂 and that it not been assigned to anyone yet. He also told me they had semi-truck trailers full of the backlog of mailed returns so it would be awhile. On 9/11/20 they changed my amended return status to "adjusted". So now waiting to receive something (hopefully a check) in the mail. So I might get something within 6 months of when I originally mailed it in....hopefully this isn't the new normal. 🙂
