Does Amending Count as 1 of 5 E-files?

I dont recall ever having an issue with this before - turbotax premier is not allowing me now to submit an efile since it states that 5 e-files have been used. This has never been a restriction in the past, has it? i have been able to efile an amended return in previous years.

Does Amending Count as 1 of 5 E-files?

Only current year returns can be e-filed. It's possible the IRS could count an amended return as a separate e-file.

 

See requirement number 5 on page 31 of this IRS Publication: IRS Pub 1345. The IRS requires that software developers ensure there is no more than 5 electronic files from one software package or from one email address. 

 

5. Ensure that it doesn’t accept transmission for more than five electronic returns originating from one software package or from one e-mail address
