Will I get the unemployment tax refund

The IRS controls when the tax refund for the unemployment compensation exclusion is distributed.  The IRS sends the refunds in batches to those that are eligible starting in May and throughout the summer months.

Go to these IRS websites for information -

Not everyone will get an additional  refund due to the unemployment exclusion because they had zero taxable income on the original return thus it will not affect the refund.  Review your return carefully ... if line 15 is already a zero then there is nothing more to get.
