Made an error on deductions & have alredy e filed

If you have already e-filed or mailed the return, then you will need to wait until the IRS has accepted or rejected that return before you can make any changes.  

  • If they reject it, then just make the needed changes and re-submit the return.  
  • If they accept it, then you will need to wait until you have received your refund and then amend that return to make changes, if needed. Amended returns have to be printed and mailed in and take up to 16 weeks to be processed.   

If your return gets accepted, then, you have to wait until you have received your refund to file an amendment and add additional information. You will need to send in any forms that caused the need for an amendment (Original 1040 Form, new 1040X Form, etc). Print, sign and mail your forms to the IRS.
