Can I edit my federal tax return submission?

As long as you have not already filed your tax return you can edit it. You can revisit the section you need to edit to make corrections.

1. Log into your online Turbo Tax account.

2. Click on "Take me to my return".

3. Then click on "Federal" or "State", on the left side.

4. Then you will look near the top to navigate to the specific section you would like to revisit and edit.

Can I edit my federal tax return submission?

If you have filed.....

You cannot change or add anything on the return that you e-filed.  It is too late, just like when you put an envelope in a US mailbox

Now you have to wait until the IRS either rejects or accepts your return. Which won't be until Feb 12 this year. If your return is rejected, you will be able to go into your account and add or change it and resend it. Click on Add a State to let you back into your return..

If the IRS accepts your return, then you have to wait until it has been fully processed and you have received your refund or paid the tax due. THEN you can prepare an amended tax return 1040X and mail it in. You cannot e-file an amended return.  Meanwhile, DO NOT change anything on your return until you start the amended return. If you did change or add the missing info then take it out and put your return back to the way it was when you first filed it.

You can check your efiling status here,
