PLEASE HELP! I THINK I MADE A HUGE MISTAKE!!! I LEFT OUT DOCUMENTS AFTER FILING AND WENT BACK IN AND CHANGED INFO.

I just filed my taxes and it is currently pending. I checked my mail and got a 1099-NEC form that I had totally forgot was coming through the mail. I went back into my turbotax account and added the form ( I KNOW..HUGE MISTAKE) and submitted it. When I go into my account my refund is $200 higher from adding the form but when I go to the home page that shows your refund and about and it status, its still showing the previous refund that was originally submitted first. Will my taxes be affect from resubmitting information? will my refund amount update to the new amount? PLEASE HELP. I don't know what to do.

Sorry,  I'm surprised you were even able to add it after filing.  It usually locks your account.  Take it out then you will need to amend later.

 

You cannot change or add anything on the return that you e-filed.  It is too late, just like when you put an envelope in a US mailbox

Now you have to wait until the IRS either rejects or accepts your return. Which won't be until Feb 12 this year. If your return is rejected, you will be able to go into your account and add or change it and resend it. Click on Add a State to let you back into your return..

If the IRS accepts your return, then you have to wait until it has been fully processed and you have received your refund or paid the tax due. THEN you can prepare an amended tax return 1040X and mail it in. You cannot e-file an amended return.  Meanwhile, DO NOT change anything on your return until you start the amended return. If you did change or add the missing info then take it out and put your return back to the way it was when you first filed it.
