Amendment unemployment

I am wondering if the IRS is still doing the automatic amendments for the 2020 tax forgiveness on unemployment. And if so when should I expect my return. Or do I need to file at myself. I'm so confused on that

Amendment unemployment

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.
