My unemployment tax amended tax return

Hello dessybeauty21

I understand it can be frustrating waiting for your additional tax refund!

 

First, you'll want to review your return and confirm you included the unemployment compensation on your tax return. It would appear on your 2020 Schedule 1 Line 7. If it was included, and no exclusion on your 2020 Schedule 1 Line 8, then you do not need to amend, the IRS is automatically adjusting the returns.

The IRS has said that payments will continue "throughout the summer," which means that unless we hear something else, payments could continue through September 22nd.


You may request a tax transcript that would reflect if the IRS has made changes to your filed tax return. There are different types of transcripts, I recommend the Record of Account Transcript.

Here is a link to check the exclusion amount you would be eligible.

If you did not include the unemployment compensation on your tax return, then you would need to amend.

How can I check to make sure I added my unemployment compensation on my amended tax return

Hello,

 

You can review your amended tax return, Form 1040X, for your unemployment compensation.  The taxable portion of your unemployment compensation will be on Line 1 Column B.

 

You will also now see the Unemployment Compensation, it would appear on your 2020 Schedule 1 Line 7.  and the exclusion on your 2020 Schedule 1 Line 8.

 

Hope this information is helpful!

It has an amount on it but I don’t think it’s my unemployment amount

You can compare your Form 1099G with your unemployment compensation to your Schedule 1.  The amount from Form 1099G Box 1 should be reported on your Schedule 1 Line 7.
