Can I change my TurboTax file so it knows I did not mail in the earlier version I printed? (I want to e-file, and it won't be an amended return!)

I printed my federal return in February, but did not mail it in. I now need to change a few details before I file--but I want to e-file, and since I did not mail in the original version, I should be able to! But TurboTax thinks I did mail it in (since I printed it). How can I "retract" having printed it?

If you haven't efiled or mailed your return you can go back in and change anything you want.  Do not click on Amend!

 

 

Click on Add a State to let you back into your return.

 

  1. From Tax Home (the first screen you see after you sign in), scroll down to Your tax returns & documents. You may have to select Show to open the drop down.
  2. Select 2020, and then select Add a State (you're not actually adding a state, this is just the workaround).

 

 

Then when you are ready to file you can try to switch to efile.

Thank you! But that only works if I am not changing anything in my return before I file--at this point, TurboTax thinks any change I make is "amending" the return, and it currently won't let me do that. What I need to know is if there's a way to "undo" the earlier printing, so I can add a few things before I e-file; is that possible?

To access your current or prior year online tax returns sign onto the TurboTax website with the User ID you used to create the account - https://myturbotax.intuit.com/

 

When you sign onto your online account and land on the Tax Home web page, scroll down and click on Add a state. 

This will take you back to the 2020 online tax return so you can make any changes needed before filing.
