I think it is because I did not file form with deductions.  But that does not explain how to amend.

You may not need to amend.

You can just not report the 1099-Q, at all, if your student-beneficiary has sufficient educational expenses, including room & board (even if he lives at home) to cover the distribution. When the box 1 amount on form 1099-Q is fully covered by expenses, TurboTax will enter nothing about the 1099-Q on the actual tax forms, including form 1040X (amendment).
