Can I e-file an amended return, Form 1040X?

No, the Form 1040X has to be mailed to the IRS. The IRS does not allow the Form 1040X to be e-filed. Sign in to your account and choose the amended/corrected tax return option and we'll help you prepare your amended tax return.

We recommend that you do not amend your tax return until after you have received your refund or paid the taxes you owe from your original return you filed. The IRS will often automatically make a correction to your tax return for missing or incorrect W-2 (W2) or 1099 forms. You do not need to amend your federal tax return if the IRS corrects the error when they process your original tax return. You will receive an IRS notice explaining the adjustment or asking for additional forms for documentation.
