Unless your bankruptcy court has a local amendment form (Northern, Southern, Eastern, Western) on its website, which provides specific requirements for amendment, the default method is to file the original amended petition, plus two copies with the clerk, and a proof of service showing that you have served notice of the amendment to the trustee and any creditor who will be affected by the amended petition.
The schedules should reflect that the prorated value of your tax refund is an asset of the bankruptcy estate for distribution to unsecured creditors. If you filed bankruptcy on Nov 3, then 306/365≈84% of your refund is estate property, and 16% is your separate property.
