How do I file an amended tax return for 2019 and also for 2020

My child’s father claimed him without my knowledge in 2019, he received all the stimulus money and my 2019 tax return got rejected …. I haven’t filed since ….he was not eligible to claim my son bc he lived with me and his dad was just released from prison in 2019 after serving over 5 years , how do I go about reversing it so I get the money owed to me and he has to pay it back

If your return was rejected or you didn't file you do not need to amend.  Just file the original returns.  You need to file 2019, 2020, 2021 and now 2022.  

How to finish a return you started online


You can buy the last 3 years of Turbo Tax here,


You will need a full Windows or Mac to install it on.


You will have to print and mail in prior year returns.  And if you are doing more than 1 year, send each year in a separate envelope. Sometimes the IRS will just staple all the sheets together and miss a second return.  Be sure to attach copies of your W2s and any 1099s that have withholding on them.  Don't forget state.  You have to mail federal and state in separate envelopes because they go to different places.  Get a tracking number from the post office when you mail them for proof of filing.


Or if you have a simple return you can get the blank forms from the IRS and fill them in by hand for free.  I have a list of some of the basic ones I can post direct links to.

Be quick about those old tax years ... the 2019 return has until 7/15/23 to be filed but the 2020 return only has until 5/15/23 due to the odd extensions that were given on the 2019 & 2020 tax years.
