What happens if I earn $20 interest from a bank but mistakenly report to the IRS that I earn $30?

I don't care if i overpay. Just to know if I have to do a Amended Tax or not

Other answer:

mollyjones:
Nothing happens except a slight increase in the tax or charges.
Max Hoopla:
You pay tax on an additional $10
Judy:
You might or might not pay a dollar or two too much tax.
hamel5:
Unless it bumps you into another bracket, it doesn't matter . Even if it did – you paid an extra $1
Pascal the Gambler:
You pay slightly more in taxes.
mollyjones:
Can I just ignore it? Meaning NO NEED TO DO ANYTHING?
A Hunch:
Taxes are determine in $50 increments.
If the $10 keeps you in the same increment, nothing happens.
If it's a different increment, you paid a couple of extra dollars in taxes.
Stoo:
You'll end up paying tax on the extra $10. Probably not worth worrying about.
Harro:
They're probably just charge you a little bit more tax. (They'll send you a bill)
Robt:
Nothing
