Unemployment income

I have already filed but now the unemployment is non taxed. I went to do an amended but Turbo tax showed no difference. Please advise.

You are among millions who have now been affected by a mid-tax season change in the tax law.  Patience will be necessary.

TurboTax will update the software for the unemployment but there is no timeline yet.

  If you have not e-filed yet—-wait.   And if you already e-filed and want to amend for this—WAIT.


Please read this very recent news from the IRS:

Do not try and amend the 2020 tax return since the Form 1040-X has not been finalized.

The IRS Form 1040-X for amending a 2020 tax return is scheduled to be available on 03/25/2021 (subject to change)
