Stimulus received after filing taxes

I filed my taxes on Jan 7th, 21. I hadn’t received my second stimulus payment at that point, so I reported that when asked on my taxes and the $1200 was added to my refund amount. Well, I received the stimulus payment the next day in my bank account. What do I do now? Can I edit those details on my return since my taxes won’t be accepted by the IRS until late January? I’ve already submitted my efile and it doesn’t  look like there’s a way to edit.

There is no way to edit a tax return that you have e-filed.  (Which is why you should not rush to e-file).  It will remain in "pending" on the server until the IRS begins to accept and reject returns at the end of January.  Sit tight and see if your return is accepted or rejected. If they reject it later in the month you will be able to make corrections.  If it accepted, we do not know yet if the IRS will catch this mistake or if you will have to go through the process to amend your return a few months from now.

Thank you, I figured I’d need to wait for rejection or acceptance. This confirms it. Appreciate your input.
