I am confused. I started an amended 2019 return. The fed and state refunds changed to zero...I understand this. I added a 1099-r and completed my amended state return as well. Numbers changed to I owe $2 for fed and will get $15 refund from state. It asked if I wanted to print the returns and I did. After I selected to print them the $15 counted down to zero. Still says owe $2 and my 1040x reflects that. But my state amended return shows no refund and nothing owed. What happened to the $15? So confused.
I do not know why your return showed the $15 initially, but it would be unusual to get a state refund if you added pension income to your return. It would not be unusual for your state tax to stay the same, since pension income is often not taxable on a state return.
So, your return is probably correct.
I have read through all of these and it doesn't really answer the question. I amended my 2018 return due to now being able to take the PMI deduction. After I amended the return I noticed the "original amount" column for itemized deductions does not match the original amount on my 2018 return. It is off by $3635. I have zero idea why
I have gone through the original and the amended line by line. I called Turbotax- they were of no help.
It sounds like something was changed in the input before the amended return and after your return was filed.
You may need to start your amended return again. Before you start preparing your amended return, review the input in the return to ensure the amounts match to the return as originally filed. If they do not, make any adjustments in the input section as needed to ensure they match what was originally filed.
Once you confirm the amounts match, you can then start the amended return.
Thank you- I checked every line- I amended- canceled- and re amended- same thing over and over. The amendment is supposed to start with a 0$ amount but mine starts (and ends) with $1394 every time. The amendment is showing I took an itemized deduction "originally" that is $3635 less than what I actually took- causing me to receive a larger refund. I don't know why this is happening. If it is legitimate- awesome! If it's not- I don't want to get audited!!
Well, you want to make sure you start with the amounts based upon the return your filed. You don't want to start off with a number not on your originally filed return.
You should make the changes as I mentioned above before starting the amended return so the original return numbers match what was originally filed.
