How do i do in amend 2016 return not filed with turbotax

You can but it is a bit of an involved process.  I will give you the general steps below, so you can decide if it is something you want to do -

  1. You would need to completely fill out your 2016 return again from scratch in the TurboTax program.  This would also mean if you can’t use the Free Edition version of TurboTax, you would need to pay for the Federal program again.
  2. You will then need to make sure the 2016 return shows exactly the same thing as your 2016 return with Jackson Hewitt.  This is important and if you did not prepare your return yourself the first time, it can be difficult to know exactly how it was prepared.
  3. You will then tell the program you are filing the return by paper - this must be done to make the program know you are done and allow the amendment to work right
  4. Then, you will be able to amend your "filed" return in the 2016 TurboTax program.  Click here for instructions on how to file your amended return. 
  5. TurboTax will produce the 1040X form for you to print and mail to the IRS.
