Forgot to enter W-2

My husband filed jointly for us and I got another W-2 in the mail for a part time job that I had worked for a month last year that had just slipped my mind. How do I handle this?

Since you have already filed the return, you must wait until the IRS either accepts or rejects the original tax return before you can amend. 

Once your original return has been accepted (and you have received your refund) or rejected, you can then add the new W-2 to your tax return. 

Please see these instructions for amending a return in TurboTax Online https://ttlc.intuit.com/replies/5567856


Once the return is available for editing, use the instructions below to add the W-2:

  • On the Tax Timeline menu at the top of the screen, select "Federal Taxes".
  • Select "Wages and Income" underneath on the second menu bar. 
  • Select "Edit/Add" next "Job (W-2)" to view a summary of all W-2's entered on the return.

  • On this screen, select the "+Add another W-2" button to add income.

Wait for the IRS to push it back, wait for them to accept it, or file an amendment with TurboTax.

It did not go to the IRS if you did not hit TRANSMIT, so you're still in business.
