My filing for 2018 was rejected and the addendum I plan to mail will not be received in-time for me to file by the extension for this years tax return. Please assist in how I can make sure everything is received on-time this year?
An amended 2018 tax return would have no bearing on filing 2019 tax return or requesting an extension for 2019. A 2019 tax return and/or extension can be filed at any time without regard to the 2018 tax return.
When you say your 2018 return was rejected, are you referring to the return when you filed it sometime before mid October, 2019. A 2018 return could not be efiled any later than mid October 2018. Did you use the 2018 tax program to prepare and file it? You can't use the current online program for a 2018 tax return. It is only for preparing a 2019 tax return.
Thank you for the response.
Correct I am referring to a return I submitted and was rejected before October 2018. The issue that it is causing me with filing for 2019- is I don't know my AGI in 2018 to fill in on this years return.
Since your 2018 return was not filed on time (like before September) then you enter 0 for the AGI to efile 2019.
Now let's go back to 2018. Did you ever get the original return filed? Did you mail it? If it rejected and you never mailed or filed 2018 you do not amend it. Just fix the original one and file it now.
