Can we amend our tax return to add AOTC now? When I originally filed I received a message saying it was "not available, and to check back later in the year".

yes you can amend.  the return must  be mailed.  use a method where you can track it.

A 1040X cannot be e-filed.  It must be printed and mailed.  It will take about 3-4 months for the IRS to process an amended return.  It is a good idea to use a mailing service that will track it, like UPS or certified mail, so you will know it was received.

Wait about 3 weeks from mailing and you can check the status of your amended return:
