I already filed but later found out that I entered the wrong tax ID for my child's daycare. Do I need to amend my return for this? If so, where can I update this?

Yes, if you have the correct provider number you should amend so that the correct number is filed with your return. You can use the steps below to amend, then change the provider number on your return.

To file an amended return:

1. Wait for your return to be accepted or rejected by the IRS

2. Log into your account, and at your tax timeline select your "2016 Tax Year"

3. Select to "Amend (Change) 2016 return" and follow the directions

2. Select "Deductions & Credits"

3. Scroll down to "You and Your Family" and select "Show More"

4. Select "Revisit" next to "Child and Dependent Care Credit"

5. Select "Yes" to "Did you pay for child or dependent care in 2016?"

6. Select "Continue" on the Add Dependents page

7. You should now be at the screen that says "Here are your care providers. Next, we'll get your expense info."

8. Select "Edit" next to the provider you would like to change
