If you have filed early before the exclusion, the IRS will recalculate your return for the new 10,200 unemployment exemption for you. There is no need for taxpayers to file an amended return unless the calculations make the taxpayer newly eligible for additional federal credits and deductions not already included on the original tax return.

 

Just keep waiting.  The IRS is sending them out in batches over the summer.

See IRS article May 14, 2021

Just FYI ... the original return that you sent to the IRS was the ONLY return the IRS got. 

 

Then once the program was updated for the change when you logged back in the return was updated automatically by MISTAKE and the TT program has since been corrected to only show the original return so the AGI that passes thru to next year is correct.  This is what you saw earlier. 

 

The changes were NEVER sent to the IRS at all.
