The only way to file an amended tax return is to prepare a 1040X and print, sign. and mail it.  If you did something else, like try to e-file a change, the changes were NOT TRANSMITTED.

You can amend a tax return after it has been fully processed and you have received your refund.  You must work from your return exactly as it was when you first filed it. If you changed anything, change it back to the way it was when you originally filed it, before you follow the steps to amend. Follow the TT instructions to amend a tax return:

Wait about 3 weeks and you can check the status of your amended return:

It will take about 3-4 months for the IRS to process an amended return.

If you received an additional W-2 after you filed your taxes, you will need to file an amended return. You can do that before you get your refund check from your original return. If more refund is due, you will get it when the amended return is processed. If you need to pay, you may have to pay back some of the money that you received.
