Messed up on taxes

This is not live chat. We cannot help you unless you provide some specific information and details of what is "messed up."  Did you e-file?

Did you click that big orange button that said “Transmit my return now?”  If you did that, you cannot do anything to fix it yet.  You have to wait for the email that tells you if your return was accepted or rejected. Those emails will not start coming in until the IRS begins to accept/reject e-files in late January.   If you do not see an email, check your spam folder.

 

 

 

You cannot change or add anything on the return that you just e-filed, nor can you stop it.  It is too late, just like when you put an envelope in a US mailbox on the corner.  The IRS does not allow you to take it back.

 

If you left out a W-2, a 1099G, or a dependent, or a 1099 etc…DO NOT change your return while it is “pending.”  The changes will go nowhere.

 

Now you have to wait until the IRS either rejects or accepts your return.  If your return is rejected, you will be able to go into your account and make the necessary changes to your tax return and re-submit your return. 

 

 If the IRS accepts your return, however, then you have to wait longer until it has been fully processed and you have received your refund.  THEN you can prepare an amended tax return and e-file or mail  it in. You have to be able to work from that return exactly the way it was when it was e-filed originally.  You will need to use a form called a 1040X.

 

  Meanwhile, DO NOT go in and start changing anything on your return in the system, or you will make a mess for yourself.  Sit tight and wait until you see what the IRS does with the return you just e-filed

@Jatari1521 You are confused.   The $12,550 is your standard deduction.  That only means that the first $12,550 of your income is "tax free."   You only have to pay tax on the difference.   

 

Look at boxes 2 and 17 on your W-2.   That shows how much tax was withheld from your paychecks.   If you had enough tax withheld to pay tax on about $21K then you would be getting a refund.  If you did not have enough withheld then you owe tax or maybe get a very small refund.

The program asked you if you got the third stimulus ... if you did not and you entered a zero then the credit allowed is already on the return ... look at the form 1040 line 30.  If the $1400 is there then there is nothing to amend for.
