Does anyone know when we are being refunded for the payment to unemployment? They said they will issue them in May but it is now July and not a penny.

Does anyone know when we are being refunded for the payment to unemployment? They said they will issue them in May but it is now July and not a penny.

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.

The tax refunds for the unemployment compensation exclusion started in May and will continue throughout the next few months.  The IRS is sending the refunds in batches so if you are eligible you just need to be patient.

Unless you're entitled to a new credit or additional deductions as described in Topic E, there's no need to file an amended return (Form 1040-X) to report the amount of unemployment compensation to exclude. The IRS will perform the corrections starting in late May and continue throughout the summer and into the fall.

If you already filed your tax return, we'll determine the correct taxable amount of unemployment compensation and tax. We'll also adjust any non-refundable or refundable credits that you reported on your return that are impacted by the exclusion. In addition, if you did not claim the Recovery Rebate Credit, Earned Income Credit with no qualifying dependents or the Advance Premium Tax Credit on your tax return, but are now eligible when the unemployment exclusion is applied, you do not need to file an amended return. The IRS will calculate the credit for you and include it in any overpayment.
