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 - 1. Only Tax Year 2021, 2022 and 2023 1040 and 1040-SR returns can be amended electronically at this time. Amended Returns for any other tax years or tax types must be filed by paper. if the original return was e-filed, in most cases you can e-file the amended return as well for Federal.

  3. Q - How long do I have to file an amended return?
    A - Generally, to claim a refund, you must file Form 1040-X within 3 years after the date you filed your original return or within 2 years after the date you paid the tax, whichever is later. Returns filed before the due date (without regard to extensions) are considered filed on the due date, and withholding is deemed to be tax paid on the due date. Special rules apply for refund claims relating to net operating losses, foreign tax credits, bad debts, and other issues. For more information, refer to the Instructions for Form 1040-X (PDF)

  4. Q - What are some reasons that an amended return cannot be filed electronically with the IRS?
    A - Amended returns must be filed by paper for the following reasons:
