I received a 1099-MISC after I filed my taxes, both state and federal. How do I amend my return?

Yes, you may have to amend all of the returns. 

If after you amend your returns, there is no change on one of the states, you do not have to re-file it.

 

If you want to make changes, or add a document to a tax return that has already been submitted you should follow these guidelines.

  • You must first wait until the initial return is completely processed.
  • You will have to use the same TurboTax account that you used for the original tax return.
  • Once you begin your amendment, you'll see your original return. 
    • The refund calculator will start new at $0 and only reflect the changes in the refund or tax due
    • Only make changes to the areas of your return that need amending.
  • You have three years from the date you filed your return or two years after you paid the tax due (whichever is later) to file an amendment
