You will have to wait until the Form 1040X for amending a federal tax return is available. It is estimated to be available on 02/20/2020, subject to change.
An amended tax return, Form 1040X, can only be printed, signed, dated and mailed by you to the IRS, it cannot be e-filed. The IRS will take up to 4 months to process the amended tax return. Wait until you have received the tax refund or the taxes owed have been paid and processed by the IRS before amending the tax return.
On the Tax Home web page when the Form 1040X for amending a 2019 tax return becomes available there will be a link - Amend (change) return
I need to amend my stimulus check 2019 tax return. Once I did the stimulus check first before doing my actual tax return, so now it's not even letting me do my tax return because its saying duplicate social security number and that I've been trying to send the same tax return twice. So that is why I need to amend my 2019 stimulus tax return. So I can e-file my 1099 tax return.
If you submitted the non-filer form, it was processed by the IRS as an original filed return. Any subsequent filing cannot be filed electronically; it has to be mailed in.
If you file your return with a Form 1040X it will be processed like an amended return.
However, here are two other options:
- You don’t need to fill out the 1040X to get your return processed. All you need to do is indicate in a cover letter to your 1040 that you filed a return to get the stimulus check and that this is a corrected return.
- You can simply write ‘1040X amended return’ on the top of the paper 1040.
Right now the IRS is not processing paper returns, but there will be no way for your to efile, so this is your only option. Be prepared for a longer than usual processing time.
