How do I amend (correct) a 2018 return already filed by mail? Not e-filed!!

You amend your return the same way whether you mail in your return or e-filed.  The FAQ is only stating about e-filed returns but the instructions are the same for even mailed in returns.

On your original return you mailed, you don't get an accepted notice but 3 to 4 weeks there should be information on the IRS website Where's My Refund, that would be the way to know they received your original return (accepted)

Amended returns must be mailed.
