If you need to change anything within your return, you will need to file an amended return. 

 

Please follow the instructions here to amend your return.

As CarissaM stated above, if the return was already filed you will need to file an amendment. Wait until it has been processed and you have received your refund or confirmation that any tax due was paid. (If you file an amended return while your first return is being processed, it can cause extended delays for both returns)

Amended returns can only be mailed. It is suggested that it be mailed certified with return receipt (or other tracking service) to verify that the IRS receives it.

You can check the status of the amended return here, but allow 3 weeks after mailing.

If the IRS would reject your return for any reason, then you would be able to go in and make any necessary changes to your tax return and resubmit.

How do I fix a rejected return?

I filed as separately rather than with my spouse.  Later my spouse file an amended return and paid again.  In other words I paid taxes twice.  My spouse made it clear in the Amended Return that I had already paid and those monies are an overpayment.  How do I get what monies I paid filing separately back?
