Line 22—Overpayment Received as Refund

If the IRS does not use your overpayment to pay past due federal or state debts, the refund amount on Line 22 will be sent separately from any refund you claimed on your original return (see the instructions for Line 18). We will figure any interest and include it in your refund.

Note. You will receive a check for any refund due to you. A refund on an amended return cannot be deposited directly to your bank account.
