Did you click that big orange button that said “Transmit my return now?”  If you did that, you cannot do anything to fix it yet.  The IRS will begin to accept/reject 2020 returns on Friday, February 12, 2021.  You have to wait for the email that tells you if your return was accepted or rejected.  If you do not see an email, check your spam folder.

 

 

 

You cannot change or add anything on the return that you just e-filed, nor can you stop it.  It is too late, just like when you put an envelope in a US mailbox on the corner.

 

If you left out a W-2, a 1099G, or a dependent, or a 1099 etc…DO NOT change your return while it is “pending.”  The changes will go nowhere.

 

Now you have to wait until the IRS either rejects or accepts your return.  If your return is rejected, you will be able to go into your account and make the necessary changes to your tax return and re-submit your return. 

 

 If the IRS accepts your return, however, then you have to wait longer until it has been fully processed and you have received your refund.  THEN you can prepare an amended tax return and mail it in. You have to be able to work from that return exactly the way it was when it was e-filed originally.  You will need to use a form called a 1040X. return.  

 

  Meanwhile, DO NOT go in and start changing anything on your return in the system, or you will make a mess for yourself.  Sit tight and wait until you see what the IRS does with the

The IRS just accepted my tax return. After I get the refund I’ll be able to file the second one on turbo tax correct? Same way as I did my first one? Also where do I get the form you stated .

@sr336120 After your tax return has been processed and your receive your refund then you will need to amend your return --- by the end of February or sometime in March the special form called a 1040X will be available to use for amending the return.   It is not yet available for 2020 returns.   And just so you know----going forward -- do not file without entering all of your income on the same tax return.   Wait for every W-2.   When you file that amended return you are going to wait for months -- it takes the IRS at least four months or more to process an amended return.   

 

After you receive your refund post back here for help with amending.
