Will 1099G form make difference. Box 1 has $789 and Box 4 has $80. Forgot to add. Amending o line costs $59.99. What should I do?

Yes, it will make a difference since the IRS will have a record of that 1099-G in their system and it won't be on your return. It might now make a difference in your actual refund or amount owe but the IRS has an option to charge a penalty for not filing an accurate return. You should file an amended return to report the missing information. . If you already filed your return you will need to wait to see if it was rejected or accepted. If they were rejected you are able to login to your return to fix what you need to fix and fix the errors that caused the rejection and refile the return. If your returns were accepted, then you will need to file an amended return. You should not try to amend your return until the original return it has been fully processed and you have received your refund or your payment has cleared.

Amended returns do not “catch up” to your original return and replace them; they are processed as two separate returns.  
Amended returns have to be printed and filed by mail.  It can take the IRS up to 12 weeks or longer to process them.   If you are due a larger refund than on your original return, your amended return should only show the difference and you will receive a separate check for it.  If you owe money on your amended return, it will show only the new amount owed, you will have to mail a check with the return.
