Just discovered error in my already filed tax return, prepared with TurboTax Premier. How do I correct this?

Do I need to submit amended 2018 tax return before April 15th?

Just discovered error in my already filed tax return, prepared with TurboTax Premier. How do I correct this?

First, wait a bit to see if your e-filed return was rejected or not (you did e-file it, yes?)

If the return is rejected by the IRS, then re-open the return, fix the problem that the reject code points to, fix the other thing that is wrong, and then e-file it again as if it is for the first time.

If your return has been accepted by the IRS, then wait until you get your refund (if one, otherwise 3 weeks or so), and file your amended return. No, the amended return does not have to be filed by April 15th.
