If you have not e-filed, just go back to Federal>wages an Income and click Add W-2

If you did e-file

 

You cannot change or add anything on the return that you just e-filed, nor can you stop it.  It is too late, just like when you put an envelope in a US mailbox on the corner.

If you left out a W-2, or a dependent, or a 1099 etc…DO NOT change your return while it is pending.  The changes will go nowhere.

Now you have to wait until the IRS either rejects or accepts your return.  If your return is rejected, you will be able to go into your account and make the necessary changes to your tax return and re-submit your return.

 If the IRS accepts your return, however, then you have to wait longer until it has been fully processed and you have received your refund.  THEN you can prepare an amended tax return and mail it in. You have to be able to work from that return exactly the way it was when it was e-filed originally.  You will need to use a form called a 1040X. You cannot e-file an amended return.  They have to be mailed, and it takes at least 2-4 months for the IRS to process an amended return.  Meanwhile, DO NOT go in and start changing anything on your return in the system, or you will make a mess for yourself.  Sit tight and wait until you see what the IRS does with the return you just e-filed

To add another W-2 to your return, please follow the steps below:

1. Open (continue) your return in TurboTax if you don't already have it open.

2. Inside TurboTax, search for W-2 in the search box in the upper right-hand of the TurboTax screen (upper- or lower-case, with or without the dash) and then select the Jump to W-2 link in the search results.

3. Proceed to the Here's your W-2 info and select add another W-2
