Can you ammend your simple return if it's been accepted but not processed?

I filed my return but forgot to put that I can be claimed on someone else's taxes. It's causing their return to be rejected because they have the right to claim me.  How can I fix it?

Can you ammend your simple return if it's been accepted but not processed?

You can amend, but it will not effect your parent's ability to e-file. They will have to paper file since you have already filed.

 

If you want to make changes or add a document to a tax return that has already been submitted, you should follow these guidelines. 

  • You must first wait until the initial return is completely processed. 
  • You will have to use the same TurboTax account that you used for the original tax return. 
  • Once you begin your amendment, you'll see your original return.  
  • The refund calculator will start new at $0 and only reflect the changes in the refund or tax due 
  • Only make changes to the areas of your return that need amending. 
  • You have three years from the date you filed your return or two years after you paid the tax due (whichever is later) to file an amendment 

Select your product below and follow the instructions.
