I had to amend my taxes for the first time

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

How do I amend my 2019 TurboTax Online return?

 

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:
