I need to edit my return

If you have not filed yet, you can go back through your return using the Menu option. Navigate to the section you need to make changes to.

I need to edit my return

I have filed my return already. Is there a way to pull it back to fix it?

Once a tax return has been filed it cannot be changed, canceled or retrieved


You will have to wait for the IRS to start accepting or rejecting 2020 tax returns on February 12, 2021
If the return is rejected you can make the necessary changes and e-file again.
If the return is accepted you will have to amend your original tax return. An amended return, Form 1040X, can only be printed and mailed to the IRS, it cannot be e-filed. The IRS will take up to 16 weeks or longer to process an amended tax return.


Before starting to amend the tax return, wait for the tax refund to be received or the taxes due to be paid and processed by the IRS.

Ok, my return was now accepted. Now I need to file an addendum to my return? If so, how?
