Not able to amend a return for tax year 2020?

When I filed my return for 2020 in February, I discovered that a 1099 was duplicated and caused my income to be double.   I discovered the error immediately when a payment voucher printed, and attempted to amend the return.

 

I am still unable to amend this return, as TurboTax says the IRS has not yet updated the forms to amend a 2020 return. In the meantime the stimulus bill passed, and I will not receive the $5,600 due to the error. Instead of a $5,300 refund I am faced with a $10,700 tax bill. 

 

I talked to a tax professional who said he could e-file an amended return for me (at a cost of $200). I don't want to do that since I already paid for Turbotax.

 

When will Turbotax be updated to allow a tax year 2020 return to be amended? This is important!!!

Thanks for the quick response. However, the return I need to amend is for the tax year 2020, not 2019. When you try to do that, it says that the IRS has not yet updated it's forms to amend a TY 2020 return. That's why I inquired as to when Turbotax will be updated. I have a tax payment of $10,613 due April 15, and I do not owe the money. It takes soooo long for the IRS to process an amended return that I need to get things started ASAP.

I thank you for your help. 

 

I contacted the IRS to inquire about how to go back and request the Economic Impact Payment. According to the person I spoke with, once the amended return is processed it is possible to go to IRS.gov/RRC and file for the stimulus payments. They said it could be e-filed. Hopefully this will be the case!
