I don’t have an answer but will be watching as I have a similar issue.
Was excluded from making a 2019 Roth Contribution because of end of 2019 windfall.
In January 2020 had my broker remove the full 2019-Roth contribution and Gains. Filed taxes in April 2020 for 2019. Made the statements on 8606 for 2019 explaining what I had done.

Now received 2020-1099-R showing the taxable gains for this years taxes.
Filed my taxes with HR Block software in Feb 2021. Software told me no penalties and no tax due. Hinted that I may need to file Amended return.

Now today March 5th, 2021 HRBlock updated Software which I think closed this error.
Question is due I need to file 1040-X to report the 1099-R again?

Is the 1040-X for 2020 or 2019 tax year, which is year on 1099, even though the codes PJ on 1099 show that it is for 2019? Quest 1
Or will the IRS catch this and bill me as the 1099 is in the forms submitted? Quest 2
