I had to do a first time amendment, how do I know it was accepted? I hope I did it right. I already received my Federal return but my amendment lowered it by $82, will they notify me that I owe it? Does it come out of Federal income tax? I'm assuming it does
What did you do to amend? Amended returns must be prepared on a Form 1040X which is not yet available on TurboTax for tax year 2019. A 1040X has to be printed signed and mailed--it cannot be e-filed.
I had to add in a 1099-R form. My wife withdrew 5500.00 for her 401k after she retired. I didn't receive the form until after I filed my taxes online and I received my Federal tax return yesterday as an auto deposit. I'm afraid I messed this up and its going to be a confusing
A 1040X cannot be e-filed. It must be printed and mailed. It will take about 4 months for the IRS to process an amended return. It is a good idea to use a mailing service that will track it, like UPS or certified mail, so you will know it was received.
Wait about 3 weeks from mailing and you can check the status of your amended return:
