You will need to determine whether your already filed return was 'accepted' or 'rejected'.  If it was rejected, you will be able to login to your return and fix the errors that caused the rejection, as well as the corrected W2 information, and then refile.  If your return was already 'accepted', then you will need to file an amended return.  You should not file your amended return until your first return was fully processed and/or you've received your refund or your payment for taxes owed has cleared.

Amended returns have to be printed and mailed.  Please find the following helpful information about filing an amended return with TurboTax:

Note there is no requirement that you file an amended return. But you probably should in this situation if the new w2 results in more tax owed or a refund because the IRS computers will surely figure that out and send you a bill (probably with interest due) and yet probably won't send you an additional refund.
