Unemployment Refund

I submitted my simple return single no dependents. I got unemployment but filed before they changed the tax rule on the first 10,000. I still haven’t received the refund and am concerned I need to amend it.

Unemployment Refund

The most recent batch of unemployment refunds went out in late July 2021.   The IRS has not announced when the next batch will be sent out, but they are still working on them.

 

 

 

The IRS is recalculating refunds for people whose AGI is $150K or below and who filed before the tax law that changed the amount of unemployment that is taxable on a federal return became effective.   

 

 

The IRS began to send out the additional refund checks for tax withheld from unemployment in May.  The refunds are being sent out in batches—starting with the simplest returns first.   If you are eligible for the extra refund for federal tax that was withheld from your unemployment the IRS will be sending you an additional refund sometime during the next several months.  TurboTax cannot track or predict when it will be sent.  The IRS has not provided a way for you to track it, so all you can do is wait for the refund to arrive.

Unemployment Refund

Would amending It just slow down the process

@Gae777 Do NOT amend for unemployment unless the tax law change makes you newly eligible for earned income credit or some other credit.   It takes the IRS at least six months to process amended returns so amending for unemployment will not speed them up for you one bit.
