I am an international student at US for only 2 years. I e-filed my tax returns using TurboTax, which I think by default file me as a resident. How should I amend that?

I think I should file as non-resident using Sprintax. But I have already e-filed and been accepted.

Since you are a nonresident for tax purposes, you will be able to prepare the amended return you need through our partner service, Sprintax.  Please click this link to visit their website:  Visit the TurboTax/Sprintax site

Thanks for answering! The problem is that I have already e-filed and looking at the website I did not see the option to amend my 2018 tax return(there were one for 2017 and prior years)

Should I first amend through TurboTax? How should I connect the two accounts from both TurboTax and Sprintax?

The amend is done by preparing Form 1040NR, and attaching a blank form 1040X to it.  Sprintax will help you with the whole procedure.

I reached the point where it asked me whether I filed 2018 tax return and I chose yes. And then it says this preparation will be served as an amendment but must be done offline and there is 90 dollar price for it....
