So I filled out a full 2019 tax return with turbo tax. Turbo tax thought i was going to mail it in, but I never did. I wanted the stimulus money, so I believe I ended up filing a $0 2019 tax return with the IRS on the IRS website. Now when I go to file the amended return with turbo tax, it is messed up and says the IRS paid me my $248 refund, which they didn't, so i know the amended tax return is wrong. What should I do now? I think I need turbo tax to think my original 2019 tax return was 0 and my amended one has all the details. Do I just need to start over and file a 2019 as 0 and then amend that? Or is there a better way?

You don't file a 1040X Amended return. You print and mail your regular 1040 and write Amended EIP Returnat the top of your 1040 form. See,
