I filed my tax return in February and I downloaded the pdf and today I downloaded a new one and it is completely different and it has a adjustment for unemployment why

I haven't received my unemployment tax break refund yet but here it looks like I should be getting one because I filed before the new stimulus bill happened

TurboTax was updated for the American Rescue Plan Act. What you see in TurboTax now is your tax return including the addition of the unemployment exclusion. 

 

TurboTax assumes the IRS will send you the adjustment as an additional refund, so the new PDF is correct. As Champ @DoninGA said, the IRS will send you a tax refund based on the exclusion if you are eligible.

The IRS will process the unemployment compensation exclusion and send you a tax refund based on the exclusion if you are eligible.

Oh OK I was so confused why I had two different ones. So the newer one is the updated version of my return. Thank you very helping me out.
