if you haven't e-filed the amended returns yet then select mailing for federal return. since you didn't specify the state there no way for us to know whether the amended one can be e-filed. many states don't accept e-filed amended returns they must be mailed.   the only way to amend the state return for UC is to go through the federal return.

As pointed out above, the State CANNOT be amended without also amending Federal, but you did not need to file the Federal.

 

There is nothing to help you with.  No problem, and there is nothing for you to do.     You did not need to file the federal, TurboTax asks you to check the form, Federal and/or state that you want to file , but if you checked both then it did then no harm if it was filed.

TurboTax says:

you can amend your state without amending your federal return.

 

You didn't follow the process.

In any case, as macuser_22  said, it's done now and there's nothing to do about it.

IRS will look at your amended return.
