Amended returns have to be printed and mailed. They can't be e-filed per IRS regulation. Since you have already received your refund, if you now owe taxes, you will mail that payment along with the amended return or make payment on IRS's website here www.irs.gov/Payments  Or if the refund meter shows an additional refund, they will send you that once they process the amended return. If you have done the amend steps and you need to get back in and print the return so that you can mail it. The steps to do so can be found below. 

NOTE: The amend instructions for 2017 can be found here How to amend (change or correct) a return you already filed; if needed.
