amending for tax year 2019

I filed my tax return for year 2019 two months ago. However I made the contribution to my traditional IRA for year 2019 one month ago. I want to file an amended tax return for year 2019. What should I do with it? Thanks.

Do NOT send in an amended return until your original tax return has been fully processed.  If you try to amend and send in a 1040X before the original return has been processed, it will create confusion and delays.  

 

 

*** hot off the presses***  the IRS will start allowing amended 2019 returns to be efiled  later this month ... wait for the TT program to be ready for this change so you can avoid the 6 month processing time the paper returns are currently taking.
