Will I still get my refund if I forgot a w2?

I just received a W2 that I forgot to put on my taxes that I have already filed. The error actually decreased the amount of my refund significantly. I know I need to file a 1040x but will I get the portion of the refund I did file for in the meantime?

You may get the original amount from your filed return. The IRS gets copies of all W-2's. When they match your return to the information you entered, they may send you a letter asking for the missing  W-2.

You should wait until your original return is fully processed (refund received) before you amend. If the IRS does not notify you and you receive your original refund then you need to amend your return.  Amended returns must be mailed.

Did you end up getting your refund? I have the similar situation this year. I received a w-2 for $400 that I forgot was coming but I already filed and was accepted. Just wondering if I should expect a delay in my refund.

@imeldamora1  If you forgot to report a W-2 on your return, and you have already filed, it's too late to make changes to your return.  There is a chance your return could be rejected by the IRS, in which case you can add the missing W-2 before re-submitting your return.  If your return accepted, the income and tax withheld on your return will not agree with what has been reported to them by your employers.  In this case, they will add the missing information to your return, and recalculate your taxes and send you a letter for proposed changes.  If you agree you won't have to do anything.  If you disagree you will have to respond to them.
