I need to file Form 8379 for Injured Spouse Relief. I've completed but it's telling me there is no difference in the first return I filed and this one. Please explain.

You will not see a difference in your tax return on TurboTax.  This is because the IRS has to approve your Form 8379, Injured Spouse Allocation and then the IRS will evaluate and determine how much of the refund will be returned to the Injured Spouse.  Once the IRS approves and determines the amount that will be refunded to the Injured Spouse, they will submit the refund.
