The amended 1040X is not ready yet.  And you can't and should not amend until the first original return is accepted.  The the IRS won't start accepting them until Jan 27, 2020.

 

Why did you amend?  Your return might reject then you can fix it and resend the original.

My return was accepted. I went on irs.gov and it said accepted. Also, the amend link was available on turbo tax AND i had a specialist on the phone witb me remoted into my computer doing it with me. I used my 2018 W2 in error so that is why i amended.

The IRS is accepting some test batches but they will not be processed until after Jan 27.   The 1040X will not be available until Feb 5.  There is no rush to amend since that takes about 4 months to do.


If you filed, it is like dropping it into the mail - you cannot get it back if accepted by the IRS or state.

To amend your 2019 tax return:

-- First, *wait* to see if your return has been accepted or rejected by the IRS or state. DO NOT do anything until you receive the accept or reject e-mail.

-- If rejected, you can correct and re-send your return.

-- If accepted you should *wait* until your return has been processed and you receive your refund or conformation that any tax due has been paid. (If you file an amended return while you first return is being processed it can cause extended delays for both returns if two returns are in the system at the same time). In addition, if the IRS makes any change on your original return, you might end up having to amend the amendment – a sticky process that can take a year or more).

-- Then you can start the amend process.

-- Amended returns can only be mailed - allow 8-12 weeks - can take up to 16 weeks (4 months) for processing.

You can check the status of your amended return here but allow 3 weeks after filing for it to show up:
