I want to amend 2016 tax return

The way to amend your tax return is to wait for it to be fully processed and you have received your refund.  Then you can use a form called the 1040X to prepare an amended tax return to add a W-2, your student loan interest, a 1099R, or whatever else you originally forgot to include.  (or to change a dependent’s status, etc.)

A 1040X cannot be e-filed.  It must be printed and mailed.  It will take about 2-4 months for the IRS to process an amended return.

Wait about 3 weeks and you can check the status of your amended return:

I want to amend 2016 tax return

I have to amend my 2016 business tax return and all subsequent years because of a depreciation error.

I re-installed the 2016 turbo business version and loaded my federal return for 2016. I am getting an error 190 when I attempt to download the state returns.

How do I proceed?
