Yes, you can amend. It may not make a difference in your refund.

If you took the standard deduction or maxed out your itemized deduction this will not help you.

But, to find out, log in. Choose your 2016 return.

Go to Amend, then inside your 2016 return go to Deductions & Credits and then to Sales tax. Add your state's sales tax and watch the refund amount to see if it changes.

If it changes and you think it's worth amending, proceed with the amendment and mail your amendment to the IRS.

 Click or tap a tax year for specific amending instructions.
