@jcaat04 The following Help Article can walk you through adding a W-2 to your tax return:  Where do I add or enter a second W-2?

 

If you've already submitted your return, you'll need to wait until the IRS either accepts or rejects it before you can add your W-2.  Refer to the references below for instructions.

@Crazy1230peanut  If you are on the return, then you've claimed yourself.  Also, if you didn't receive the full amount for your first or second-round stimulus payments, then you should claim the Recovery Rebate Credit.  If you accidentally claimed this credit, don't worry, you just won’t get any additional credit on your return if you’ve already received the full amount of the credit as stimulus payments (or if you don't qualify for a stimulus payment).
