The 1040X for amending
2017 returns will not be available until February 8th . If
you already filed your return you will need to wait to see if it was rejected
or accepted. If they were rejected you are able to login to your return to fix
what you need to fix and fix the errors that caused the rejection and refile
the return. If your returns were accepted, then you will need to file an
amended return. You should not try to amend your return
until the original return 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 return 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, you will have to mail a check with the return.
