I need to amend a rejected return. I forgot to put 2019 AGI on my 2020 return. What do I do?

Any help is appreciated.
I forgot 2019 was the first year I filed....on the questionnaire, I mistakenly clicked that I did not file last year.

First of all do not click on anything that says "amend"---you do not ever amend a rejected return.  Amending is a special process only to be used for a fully processed return.

 

 If it was rejected for AGI—-be aware that many 2019 returns took so long for the IRS to process that your 2019 AGI might not be in the IRS system.   Try using zero instead.

 

If filing with zero is rejected then file again but select the option that you did not file last year.  The IRS does not see that question and it will allow you to e-file with no AGI question.

 

 

 

 

Or—-if you filed as a “non-filer” just to get the stimulus check on a 2019 return, try using $1 as the AGI.

If that does not work and you still cannot e-file, then print, sign, and mail your tax return.

You don't have to do anything.  Checking that you did not file last year just let your return e-file without the AGI.  The IRS does not need that field.  It is just so TurboTax can e-file your return.
