If you claimed an IRA deduction that you were not entitled to and the return was accepted by the IRS, then you will have to amend the return. 

(Don't worry, lots of people amend returns because of errors like this and the IRS won't have a problem with it).

Thank you for the answer! Online, I read that I can re-file my original return all over again if its not passed the due date of filing and have yet to receive any type of notice from IRS. Is that correct?

That may be possible but could cause numerous problems if the IRS has already accepted your first return. The amendment process ensures a smooth transition from how the original return was processed to how the corrections are processed.
