I got a W2c, correcting information from a previous W-2 that was filed for 2014 (submitted 2015). Can I refile now to get reimbursed the extra amount I was taxed in '14?

My wages for 2014 included reimbursements that should not have been counted as wagers, and as such as I overpaid for my taxes.  Now, in 2016, the issue has finally resolved itself and I am receiving a W2c with corrected information to reflect 2014's true wages.  How can I use this W2c to get reimbursed the amount that I was overtaxed?  Do I have to refile 2014's taxes?  What is the best way to proceed.

Yes, amend your 2014 income tax return and enter the corrected 2014 W-2 to get the money back that you overpaid (with interest).

The law gives taxpayers three years to submit a return and claim a refund. The three-year countdown starts on the original due date.

Here are the instructions to file an amended return:
