How can I tell if I am getting a refund for my amended tax return?

I already got the refund when I first filed but I made an amendment for the unemployment.

How can I tell if I am getting a refund for my amended tax return?

The IRS does not want you to send an amended return for the unemployment tax law change.   They are recalculating refunds for people who filed before the law was changed in the middle of the tax season----so unless that change makes you newly eligible for a credit you were not already getting, do not send an amended return.


The IRS is recalculating refunds for people whose AGI is $150K or below and who filed before the tax law that changed the amount of unemployment that is taxable on a federal return became effective.   



The IRS began to send out the additional refund checks for tax withheld from unemployment in May.  The refunds are being sent out in batches—starting with the simplest returns first.   If you are eligible for the extra refund for federal tax that was withheld from your unemployment the IRS will be sending you an additional refund sometime during the next several months.  TurboTax cannot track or predict when it will be sent.  The IRS has not provided a way for you to track it, so all you can do is wait for the refund to arrive.
