I e-filed my return, and it was accepted — I had to amend taxes later though. Will I still get the original refund amount even though I amended my return?
When you amend a tax return, it can take up to 16 weeks to process even if you e-file. If you file an amended return, you should still get the refund figured on the original return. Then, if your refund is larger due to the change, you’ll get the difference between the original and amended amounts.
If your refund is smaller due to the amendment, you’ll need to send the difference between the new and the original amounts. Send this amount with the amended return to avoid penalties and interest.
