Ok but everytime i checked after it was accepted from filing on 01/25 it never said anything..
I guess ill just have to take it in somewhere to get it fixed because if it doesnt actually amend the return then the option shouldnt be available

You cannot e-file an amended return.  A 1040X has to be mailed.

Your tax return was “just filed” or accepted, but you went back to it and “amended” by adding or changing something and you “e-filed” the changes?

That is not how to amend your return.  If you changed anything on your “just-filed” or already accepted return, and then “e-filed” the changes, those changes went nowhere.

When you amend a return you need to be working from the return as it was originally, so restore those “changes” you made to the way your return was before you tried to “fix” it.

The way to amend your tax return is to wait for it to be fully processed and you have received your refund.  Then you can use a form called the 1040X to prepare an amended tax return to add a W-2, your student loan interest, a 1099R, or whatever else you originally forgot to include.  (or to change a dependent’s status, etc.)

A 1040X cannot be e-filed.  It must be printed and mailed.  It will take about 2-4 months for the IRS to process an amended return.


Wait about 3 weeks and you can check the status of your amended return:

I wish TT would modify their FAQ re amending to include a statement not to just make changes, and to put everything  back the way it was first.
