Will you still receive the 10,200 unemployment tax credit even if you didn't amend? How can you check to receive money? How long is the wait?

If you have filed early before the exclusion, the IRS will recalculate your return for the new 10,200 unemployment exemption for you. There is no need for taxpayers to file an amended return unless the calculations make the taxpayer newly eligible for additional federal credits and deductions not already included on the original tax return.

 

Just keep waiting.  The IRS is sending them out in batches over the summer.

There is currently no way to check up on the refund status for UC compensation.
