Because an omission of 1099, I sent out 1040x with payment

This answer was rated:

Because an omission of 1099, I sent out 1040x with payment check yesterday. But received a refund from the error 1040 the same day too. What should I do? Do I need to include any form with the check? Should I send to the same address as 1040x filing location?

Megan C :

Thank you for your question, and thanks for requesting me directly. How are you doing today?

Megan C :

I realize that you have a question about whether you should send your refund check back to the IRS or not.

Megan C :

Your 1040X should have factored in the refund that you received, and your amount due should have included a refund of any refund you would have gotten from the original return.

Megan C :

So, you should simply deposit the check.

Megan C :
