You should not try to amend your return until it has been fully processed and you have received your refund or your payment has cleared.  Amended returns do not “catch up” to your original returns and replace them.  They are processed as two separate returns.
 

Amended returns have to be printed and filed by mail.  It can take the IRS up to 12 weeks or longer to process them.   If you are due a larger refund than on your original return, your amended return should only show the difference and you will receive a separate check for it.  If you owe money on your amended return, it will show only the new amount owed and you will have to mail a check with the return.

The 1040X for amending returns is currently scheduled to be final in mid-February.

Once you get your refund check you can go into TurboTax and amend your taxes and add the W2 you forgot.

so even if they been accepted two weeks ago, and I believe ive already received state returns, I still shouldn't amend it?

Once you have received your acceptance from both Fed and State you can do the amended return.

I am in the same situation this year. I filed my taxes and they were accepted and then another w-2 for $420 came in the mail. I know I have to amend but will this cause a delay in getting my original refund?

You will have to amend the 2021 tax return to make any changes and to add the W-2.

 

An amended return, Form 1040-X, can only be printed and mailed to the IRS if the original tax return was not 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.


The federal amended tax return, Form 1040-X, for tax year 2021 is estimated to be available in TurboTax on 02/24/2022
