Unemployment refund

Hi! I am a TurboTax Live CPA. The IRS is processing unemployment adjustments on a rolling basis. While it may not be possible to say exactly when adjustments will be made for any particular person most that were due to receive an adjustment received it already. Prior to contacting the IRS please ensure that you should be expecting a refund. In particular, check to see that there was a number on the "tax" line (line 16) on page 2 of your 1040. If there is not then no adjustment would be made since your employment was not taxable on the original return. If you did have tax on line 16 it could have been offset by certain non-refundable credits such as the dependent care expenses credit. Since some credits are non-refundable it could potentially negate the impact of the unemployment exemption.

Unemployment refund

Yes I have a number on line 16. How do I find out if I'm getting a refund back or not? Is there a number I can call and speak with someone thats not an automated response? When I call the treasury line it's all automated responses. And I can never get anyone. I have an additional almost $500 coming back to me as a refund.

You will want to follow the instructions I provided in my last post to determine if you are receiving a refund for the unemployment adjustment. You can try the priority line at the IRS at 866-860-4259. I recommend calling mid week early morning.
