Did you ever get the original refund ? Or pay the original balance due ?
Look at the form 1040X …
Column A should have the figures from the original return, Column C the corrected figures and Column B the differences between the other 2 which needs an explanation on page 2 of the form 1040X.
If you completed it correctly you will see an entry on either line 16 OR 18:
On line 16 should be the amount you paid with your original return.
On line 18 should be the amount of your original refund you received.
Then you will see your extra refund on line 22 OR the new balance due you need to pay on line 20.
If this was a direct deposit to your bank account then what you received was probably interest from the IRS for a delayed tax refund.
Any refund from an amended tax return is Only sent to you by a mailed check.
Amended tax returns are taking 6 months or longer to be processed by the IRS. Go to this IRS website for the status of an amended tax return - https://www.irs.gov/filing/wheres-my-amended-return
