If you paid your son's tuition out of pocket and claimed him as a dependent on your tax return, by claiming an education credit or tuition should reduce your taxes then increase your tax refund.  Please follow the instructions below :

If you have e-filed, wait until your return is accepted or rejected by IRS / the state.

                -If your return is rejected, add or edit your new information (along with anything else that needs to be corrected) and then re-submit your return.  See Fix a reject

                -If your return has been accepted- you cannot change the information. Instead, you have to amend a  return.   See the instructions below.

 

IRS does not allow e-file for amendment,  you will need to submit the amendment forms with related supporting documents by mail. (Follow instructions through the step-by-step interview questions in the program)

If your original return generates a refund, you should wait until your original refund arrives before you file your amendment. You can cash your check, but you still should wait until your current tax return is resolved.
