I need to complete an amended federal & state return to reflect my federal work-study w-2 that has state/local taxes paid. How do I file an amendment for both returns that will be recognized and catch up to my original filings? What are the form numbers I use? Thanks
You can't "catch up" to your original return. You must wait until the IRS processes your original return and you receive a refund if you were getting one before you start the amended return. The form is 1040X and it is estimated to be available from TurboTax on 2/5/20.
DO NOT change your original tax return until you start the amended return. If you have already changed it from the way it was originally filed and accepted, you must change it back before you start the amended return. Wait until you receive the refund from your original return before beginning your amended return to make sure you enter the correct amount. Here is an FAQ to help you:
You are not able to make changes to a pending return. To make corrections or changes to your pending return, wait until your return's either been accepted or rejected. Please click the TurboTax Help link, listed below to learn more.
Also, please see the above post from Texas Roger about amending your return.
