If you pay the tax with your return, it should not affect your 2011 refune because you have no outstanding tax liablity. To be safe, take the 2011 tax return and the check personally to the local office and get a receipt for the payment.

Not if you are sending a check for the remainder owed from 2010. You should receive your total 2011 refund.
