Misspelled name

I misspelled my last name on my federal and state taxes and they were rejected. It's past filing time so I'm not sure how to fix this other than amending both taxes. Is there another way?

All you need to do is correct the misspelling and e-file the 2020 tax return again.

 

To access your current or prior year online tax returns sign onto the TurboTax website with the User ID you used to create the account - https://myturbotax.intuit.com/

-

When you sign onto your online account and land on the Tax Home web page, scroll down and click on Add a state. 

This will take you back to the 2020 online tax return where you can make your corrections.

Click on My Info on the left side of the online program screen.

 

  • Once you've fixed the error, select File in the left-hand menu and follow the instructions to either e-file or file by mail

NO DO NOT AMEND!

If you haven't efiled or mailed your return or it rejected you can go back in and change anything you want.  Do not click on Amend!

 

Click on Add a State to let you back into your return.

From Tax Home (the first screen you see after you sign in), scroll down to Your tax returns & documents. You may have to select Show to open the drop down.

 

Select 2020, and then select Add a State (you're not actually adding a state, this is just the workaround).

 

You can efile and resend it.
