I dont understand this amended file, can you help?

I amended my return only to change an answer i checked regarding someone being able to claim me. Now I'm confused about how I go about refiling.
This feature is pending. Thanks for your patience.

I dont understand this amended file, can you help?

Here are the steps. After you finish you will need to print and mail your 1040x. If you originally said you were independent and are now stating that you are a dependent of someone, you may have a balance due. If that is the case,wait until you get your refund and enclose a check with your return.

  1. Sign in to your TurboTax account, if you're not already signed in. 
  2. In the 2016 Tax Year section, click Amend (change) return. 
  • Note: If you see an orange Take me to my return button, you can't amend because you haven't filed yet. Just click or tap that button to open your return and make your changes.
  • In the pop-up, click Amend using TurboTax Online
  • Click Continue on the We'll help you change (amend) your return screen.
  • Follow the on-screen directions to amend your return.
    • Don't worry if your refund drops to zero or does strange things while you are amending. Your calculations will come out correctly in the end.
  • When you're done, we'll provide instructions to print and mail your amended return because an amended return can't be e-filed.
