I need to amend my Michigan return and Michigan website says that amendments can now be e-filed instead of being mailed. Is Turbo Tax going to be able to do that?

Turbo Tax says I have to mail my Michigan amendment but the state website says that amendments can now be e-filed. Can someone explain how to do this or is TurboTax going to get that featre?

Amended state returns cannot be e-filed in TurboTax unless it's for state of New York or Vermont only; and they have to be current tax year in order to e-file those. All other amended returns (including prior year amends) have to be mailed when using TurboTax software. 

For Michigan, you'd need to use the e-filing system on that state's website in order to e-file an amended return; if they state that they allow e-filing of them. 

Per Michigan Department of Treasury: "When should I file an amended Michigan return?

File a Michigan amended return only after your original return or claim has been filed and processed. If you are claiming a refund on your amended return, you must file it within four years of the due date of the original return (including approved extensions). For example, to amend a 2013 return that was not extended, Form MI-1040X-12 must be postmarked by April 15, 2018.

If a change on your federal return affects your Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) and/or your exemptions, you must file an amended Michigan return within 120 days of the change. Include a copy of your amended federal return with all applicable schedules and supporting documents. Submit payment of any tax and interest due."

Can I e-file an amended state return?

So since TurboTax has those states I'm assuming that they'll be adding Michigan at some point down the road. The states website doesn't have a spot to e-file only a list of different software. What should I do? I don't want to wait 2-3 months to get my refund. Missed a form in TurboTax and had to pay and already did but doing the form gives me $1,000 refund.

There has been no update on whether or not other states will be added but if they are, that FAQ above will be updated with the information. And as far as the amend, the only option you have if they offer no e-filing system directly, is to complete the amended return, print and mail it. But since they do state on their website that it can be -filed <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="http://www.michigan.gov/taxes/0,4676,7-238-75545_43715-153796--,00.html">http://www.michigan.gov/tax...>, you may want to call them and ask how you can e-file it. They should be able to provide more details on that.

If you do have to mail it, the amount of time it will take to process it will depend on your state though. TurboTax doesn't handle processing of the return so we wouldn't be able to tell you if it will take 2-3 months for them to process and refund what you are owed.

You can go here <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="http://www.michigan.gov/taxes/0,4676,7-238-75545_43715-456101--,00.html">http://www.michigan.gov/tax...> and it will show you what to include with your mailed amended return.
