I filed my tax returns electronically with TurboTax on March 11, 2019. On May 15, 2019, IRS corrected an error in the Tax Worksheet for 2018 Schedule D. This significantly affects the amount of tax that I owed for the year. Will TurboTax notify me when IRS advises taxpayers about how to correct my return to reflect the update?
Once IRS accepts your return for processing, TurboTax gets no further information about changes made, so there will be no related actions performed. Further communications are only between you and IRS, unless you wish to share contents for help in responding.
The IRS added Lines 18 a, b, and c to the original Schedule D Tax Worksheet. The net is a change in Line 45 "Tax on all taxable income." For me, this results in a reduction of almost $1,400.
