Can i amend an entry?

If you've filed your tax return, you will have to amend it.


If you want to make changes to a tax return that has already been submitted  and was accepted, you should follow these guidelines to amend your return.

  • You must first wait until the initial return is completely processed.
  • You will have to use the same TurboTax account that you used for the original tax return.
  • Once you begin your amendment, you'll see your original return.
    • The refund calculator will start new at $0 and only reflect the changes in the refund or tax due
    • Only make changes to the areas of your return that need amending.
  • You have three years from the date you filed your return or two years after you paid the tax due (whichever is later) to file an amendment
