How to cancel a return that hasn’t been sent yet

Once you transmit your returns, you are not able to cancel the return. Please see Can I cancel a pending return? for more information.

If you want to review and update your 2020 return, please enter your information here by February 6, to have your 2020 tax return sent back to you.  You will then receive an email from TurboTax on February 8, letting you know that your return is available and providing you with detailed instructions on how to review, update and re-file your tax return without the Recovery Rebate Credit.

@wakannaylz As long as you haven't submitted your return yet, you can use the Clear and Start Over button to clear out any previously entered information.

There is no “clear and start over” button in the tax tools section. Please advise 🙏

How to cancel a return that hasn’t been sent yet

I have submitted it .., but the IRS is not accepting returns until February 12. So, why can’t I amend my return? I just got another W2 from a late sending employer.

I have completed it and submitted to turbo tax but the IRS isn’t even accepting returns until feb 12. So I should be able to amend it, correct?

@wakannaylz 

Once a tax return has been filed it cannot be changed, canceled or retrieved


You will have to wait for the IRS to start accepting or rejecting 2020 tax returns on February 12, 2021
If the return is rejected you can make the necessary changes and e-file again.
If the return is accepted you will have to amend your original tax return. An amended return, Form 1040X, can only be printed and mailed to the IRS, it cannot be e-filed. The IRS will take up to 16 weeks or longer to process an amended tax return.


Before starting to amend the tax return, wait for the tax refund to be received or the taxes due to be paid and processed by the IRS.


See this TurboTax support FAQ on amending a tax return originally completed and filed using the 2020 TurboTax online editions - https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/amending/help/how-do-i-amend-my-turbotax-online-return/01/27577

Here is a link to the IRS's most up to date statements made regarding the Second Stimulus Payment:

 

IRS Statement on Economic Impact Payments

 

Should this not provide you with the information you are looking for, I can assure you that the IRS will be performing extensive reconciliations of taxpayers' accounts to ensure the minimal amount of overpayments go out. You do not need to file an amended return.
