1040-x eFile option not present?

I submitted (e-File on my TurboTax desktop) my regular Federal Taxes.

I realized later that I had missed one item, so I need to submit an amendment.

I know I need to wait until the first submission is processed before I submit the 1040-x.

Question,  I did find and went through the process of walking through the 1040-x workflow, but I didn't see an option to do an e-File. It just gave me a paper option, is it just waiting for the first federal submission to be completed first?

 

I only saw California with an option to e-File, but not Federal.

Follow these steps when Amending your return.

 

If you want to make changes or add a document to a tax return that has already been submitted, you should follow these guidelines. 

  • You must first wait until the initial return is completely processed. 
  • You will have to use the same TurboTax account that you used for the original tax return. 
  • Once you begin your amendment, you'll see your original return.  
  • The refund calculator will start new at $0 and only reflect the changes in the refund or tax due 
  • Only make changes to the areas of your return that need amending. 
  • You have three years from the date you filed your return or two years after you paid the tax due (whichever is later) to file an amendment

Yes, I will wait until after the 1040 is processed.

 

My question however was not answered.

 

Does TurboTax have an option to e-File the 1040x?

The only option it gave me while I wait for my first submission is to print it and mail it.

If you are amending your 2023 tax return, then if your form is able to be e-filed, you will be given the option to e-file.  Not all amended returns are able to be e-filed.

 

For years prior to 2023, they all must be printed and mailed as those are not able to be e-filed at all.
