Why is my federal amount owed 1800 more when I put that I did receive my stimulus? Is this some glitch? I am currently amending my 2020 taxes almost submitting.

I received my 1800 owed on my 2020 return last month. I am amending because I needed to add income I had forgot and now it shows that I owe 1800 more. Please help

your revised 1040 shows a change on line 30.

Did you do that on purpose or accidentally?

If no change is desired, you have to fix your revised form 1040.

 

If the accident was on your original 1040, then you owe $1,800 back to the IRS.

If you got your $1,800 via refund,

then when you amend, you do not then say you got it.

You have to continue as originally reported to say you didn't get it.

Sheesh.

Of course.. I didn’t really think about it like that. So I’ll do just that, that I didn’t receive it. Thanks!
