I realized I made a mistake on my tax return after already submitting it.

Unfortunately, since you have already filed you will need to wait until the IRS either rejects or accepts your return.  If your return is rejected, you will be able to go into your account and make the necessary changes and re-submit your return.  If the IRS accepts your return, you MUST wait until it has been fully processed and you receive your refund or have paid your balance due.  

The IRS may catch the error and make the correction for you.  If not, you will need to prepare an amended tax return and mail it in. Form 1040X to amend will not be finalized until February 11th. You cannot e-file an amended return.  They have to be mailed, and it takes at least a couple of months for the IRS to process an amended return. In the meanwhile, DO NOT go in and make any changes to your return. 3 weeks after you mailed your amendment, you can start tracking its progress at the IRS Where's My Amended Return? site.

I put wrong AGI amount my taxes where rejected, now I have been upgrade to your PREIMER package and your requesting a higher fee and you want me to pay out of pocket. All want my original basic package and fees to be taken out of my federal refund when I first file my taxes. How do you upgrade after I file and ask for more money I'm only making a correction
