Unemployment tax refund

How do we know if we are getting a refund? We just got out transcript and it’s showing no amount

Unemployment tax refund

In order to figure out if you are due a refund, you can generate an amended return in TurboTax.  You will not actually file the return.  If you are due a refund and do not see it on your transcripts, you will need to speak to IRS directly.  You can reach them at 1-800-829-1040.  We recommend calling at 7am.

How do I file an amended return without filing it? I’m a bit confused

You just start an amended return and fill it out but do not efile or mail it.  Just to see how much more you should get back when the IRS adjusts your return for the unemployment exemption.   Just to double check the amount.

Yes, exactly, VolvoGirl!  You are just looking at the result, not actually filing it!
