I filed on accident, and I forgot to add my other W2. When I entered my second W2 my refund was much larger.

Have you recently received tax information that is different than the information you used to recently file your original tax return?  (This will include a second W-2, for example).  If so, then you will want to amend your tax return to reflect the new data.  If you filed a state tax return too, you will need to amend that as well.  That is the only way you can receive the "larger refund" you mention in your question.

But before you complete and file an amended tax return, please know that you'll need to first wait until your original return is processed, and your original tax refund is sent to you.  After that time you can then print and mail in your amended return (plus state, if applicable).  And yes, amended tax returns must be printed on paper and physically mailed; they cannot be e-filed.

For further information, please find below a link to a TurboTax webpage for the current year amendment process.  We will keep that page updated throughout the tax filing season.
