Trying to file an amended 2021 return but Turbotax asking me to sign date between 1/1/2022 to 12/31 2022. Does not accept 5/22/2023. IRS website says its allowing software providers to file amended returns

Trying to file an amended 2021 return 1040-X but in very last step before transmitting Turbotax Desktop (MAC version) asking me to sign date between 1/1/2022 to 12/31/ 2022. Does not accept 5/22/2023. Also rejecting current payment date.  IRS website says it is allowing software providers to file amended returns.

"You can file Form 1040-X, Amended U.S. Individual Income Tax Return electronically with tax filing software to amend tax year 2019 or later Forms 1040 and 1040-SR, and tax year 2021 or later Forms 1040-NR."

 

Is this a software issue that Turbotax need to update since IRS feature is recent Feb 9th 2023.

A 2021 amended tax return using TurboTax cannot be e-filed. 

Nor can you use direct debit for the taxes owed.

You need to change to File by Mail and pay the taxes owed by check to be included with the mailed tax return.

Although the IRS allows it the TT program doesn't support efiling of prior year returns after the tax year efiling season closes at this time.  Your only choice will be to choose the mail in option.

I am having the same issue but... TT says the date of signature must be between 1/1/2022 and 12/31/2022.  I am wondering, since I am getting an additional refund an earlier date will only result in my getting a lower amount of interest from the IRS, what does TT Staff think will happen if I put my signature date as 12/31/2022?  It would seem that the eFile would be then accepted by the IRS and my only loss is lower interest added to my refund?  Thoughts from anyone??

@ArtCB Give up and mail your amended return.  Changing the date of the signature is not going to help you e-file a 2021 return.  E-filing is closed for that tax year.   

 

 

Only certain paid tax pros can still e-file past year amended returns. You cannot e-file an amended 2021 return that you prepared yourself using TurboTax.  Your 1040X must be printed, signed and dated in ink, and then you need to mail it in.  Use a mailing service like certified mail so you will know the IRS received it, since you will have a long wait for it to be processed.

Now that it's clear Turbotax 2021will not allow e-filing of 2021 1040-X.  I wanted to make sure Turbotax address was correct.

 

I noticed the address generated by turbotax cover page for mailing is not consistent with the one on IRS website. See link

I am getting the Austin address which is definitely not the right one for my location.

Use the address on the IRS website ... although TX is always good as well.
