So – I filed my return. Getting back a little under $ 6,000. I just receieved another w-2 totaling
$ 16,000 in earned income. A few people have told me not to worry about it. “You’re a small fish in a huge ocean..” I was told, but it doesn’t seem right to me. Not to mention if I am caught the penalty/interest they’ll lay on top of me will be greusome.
Any-hoo. I filled out a 1040X and looks like I was over paid by the IRS about $ 2,357.00.
My question is, do I send out my 1040x with a check for $ 2,357 in the amount of over payment they sent me or do I wait for the IRS to bill me for the amount?
