2015 Amendment - I downloaded turbo-tax amendment software as instructed for an amendment. The form prints as a 1040, not a 1040X amendment. Shouldn't this be a 1040X?

2015 Amendment - I downloaded turbo-tax amendment software as instructed for an amendment. The form prints as a 1040, not a 1040X amendment. Shouldn't this be a 1040X?

If you don't see an X then you didn't amend the return correctly ... undo your changes and start again. When your return is back to exactly how you filed it   click Federal Taxes (or Personal in Home & Business) > Other Tax Situations > scroll down to Other Tax Forms > then click Start or Update next to Amend a Return and follow the screen instructions.



When you are done look at the form 1040X …

Column A should have the figures from the original return, Column C the corrected figures and Column B the differences between the other 2 which needs an explanation on page 2 of the form 1040X.

If you completed it correctly you will see an entry on either line 16 OR 18:

On line 16 should be the amount you paid with your original return. If you paid nothing already then this line should be zero.

On line 18 should be the amount of your original refund you received. If you have not received your refund yet then you need to wait for it. If the refund changes from what you expected then this line must reflect that change.

Then you will see your extra refund on line 22 OR  the new balance due you need to pay on line 20.
