NEW - Amended Return FAQs

  1. Q - Do I need to file an amended tax return?
    A - You only need to file an amended tax return if the original return that was accepted by the IRS and/or State needs to be changed.
    Example # 1: You filed your 1040 to the IRS and it was accepted. The next week you receive another W-2 in the mail. The only way for you to update the originally accepted 1040 with the IRS is to AMEND that tax return and add the income.
    Example # 2: You filed your 1040 to the IRS claiming yourself as an exemption and that return was accepted. You later find that your parents were needing to claim you as a dependent on their tax return. The only way for them to be able to claim your exemption now is if you AMEND your return and choose not to claim your self exemption.


  2. Q - Can amended returns be e-filed?
    A - Amended returns cannot be e-filed. Even if they are amended in the current filing year the only way to amend a tax return is to mail the forms to the IRS for paper processing.


  3. Q - How long do I have to file an amended return?
    A - You have 3 years to file an amended tax return.
    Example: You just e-filed your 2013 tax return and realize you did not claim a credit on your 2010 tax return. You can still amend that 2010 tax return however, you can only amend that return if it is mailed BY April 15, 2014. If it was your 2009 tax return that you forgot to claim the credit on, you would be unable to file that amended return. It has been longer than 3 years.


  4. Q - How long does it take for an amended return to be processed?

    A - An amended return takes 8 to 12 weeks to process by the IRS.


  5. Q - How can I check the status of my amended return?

    A - You must make direct contact with the IRS on the processing of your amended return. On-Line Taxes, Inc. will have no information on the processing of your amended tax return. You may contact the IRS at (800)-829-1040 to check on the processing of your amended return. The IRS processes amended returns as quickly as possible however it may take 8 to 12 weeks for that amended return to be processed.


  6. Q - How do I amend my State tax return?

    A - To amend your State tax return with On-Line Taxes, Inc. first, the Federal return would need to be amended. If the values do not affect the refund or amount due for your Federal return then you do not have to mail the forms to the IRS however, you must still finish this process in order for the inputs/changes to pull forward to your state return. Once you continue through the end of your Federal amended return, we will take you back to the Tax Return Status page. In this page you may now select to AMEND MY RETURN in your State information. Save through and make any changes needed for your state return. Print all the forms and mail them to your state for processing.

If you have any further questions, you may contact our Customer Service for assistance.
