Amended return: turbotax generated a completed 1040X and the other required forms, completed. Included in this paperwork was a BLANK 1040 form. Can this be discarded?

A completed 1040 form is included with the 1040X; my question is specifically why is there also a blank 1040 form and does this need to be mailed as well with the other forms or should it be discarded?

I'm uncertain why a blank Form 1040 was included in the forms you printed. In any case, you may discard the blank Form 1040. The amounts from your original Form 1040 should actually already be reported on Form 1040X Column A.

However, if you have not received the refunds you originally filed for or paid taxes owed, then you should wait until those transactions occur because the IRS and/or state department(s) of revenue may determine the change you need to make and may not want you to file amended tax returns and instead provide instructions how they want you to proceed.

Further, TurboTax calculates your amended tax refunds or taxes owed based on the assumption you already received the refunds you originally filed for or paid taxes owed. Thus, if you don't actually receive the original refund(s) you filed for or need to adjust the amount(s), please keep that in mind when you actually amend your tax returns. Please review the following TurboTax FAQs and the embedded links under Related Information on each webpage for more information:
