Can Turbo Tax amend my 2015 taxes even if they didn't prepare them for that year?

es, you can use TurboTax to prepare your amendment, even if you did not file using the software.

You can find TurboTax software from previous years (you will need the 2015 software to amend your return) at    

Instructions on how to prepare the amended return can be found below.  After you click on the year you want to amend, you should select the option to amend using CD/downloaded software.

Please note that these instructions assume that you prepared your return using TurboTax.  Since you did not, you will want to enter the information from your return as originally filed, then proceed starting in Step 3.

When you have prepared your amended return and are ready to mail Form 1040-X you should include the following forms:

  • Foirm 1040-X
  • The new (amended) Form 1040
  • Any forms or schedules that were added or changed as a result of preparing the amendment

Please note that 1040-X cannot be e-filed - you will need to mail a paper return.  It takes the IRS at least 2 - 3 months (and sometime up to 6 months) to process amended returns.  Also, depending on whether the changes affect your numbers, you may also be required to file an amended return with your state.  

The mailing address for you state and situation can be found at  Look under Where to File on page 14.
