W-2C from 2020. Do I ammend it in TurboTax 2020 or in TurboTax 2021?

I received, at the end of April 2022, a W-2C Corrected Wage and Tax Statement (for 2020) from my employer with an update on the Social Security Tax Withheld.  Does this need to get ammended in the TurboTax 2020 software, or can it be done in the TurboTax 2021 software?

No you don't need to amend for the Social Security tax.  Unless it increased and you have more than 1 employer and together they went over the max.  Or if you claimed excess Social Security and they reduced the ss tax.  

If you do need to amend you would amend your 2020 return in the 2020 program.

So, if I put in the updated amounts into the 2020 software and it doesn't change the refund or tax owed, then no ammendment is needed?  Yay! thanks very much!
