Don't take this answer as the Gospel according to Donna, but I believe the interest only accumulates on those returns on which the IRS made an error or held up the return due to an IRS error, including asking for additional information.

In this case, it appears you had to file an amended return. So, I don't believe you would be eligible for interest on the refund. However, more than likely, someone with more knowledge than I can correct me.
