I need to amend my 2021 Tax. When I use Turbo Tax to amend the original file the program is reporting wrong numbers from my original file. If I act as if not amending, just updating I get a correct answer for refund. If I use the Turbo Tax amend file it reports a false refund. I can manually enter data in a 1040x form, but would rather Turbotax fixed their program.
What exactly is wrong? You should not amend until the first return has fully processed and you get the first refund or your tax due payment has cleared.
You will still get the refund from the first original return or still need to pay the first tax due. In fact you should not even amend until the first return has fully processed and you get the first refund or your tax due payment has cleared.
Then the amended return is only for the difference you get back or owe. I think the cover sheet shows what the original return WOULD have been if you did it right the first time.
Go by the actual 1040X. Line 18 should be your original refund amount and line 22 should be your additional refund. If you paid on your original return it will be on line 16. If there is an amount owed with the amendment, it will be on line 20.
A little hard to do since there was no refund and no additional taxes due. The 1040X shows an incorrect amount for original amount of Qualified business income. This value did not from the original to the amended, however TurboTax shows an $8 difference.
