What do I do if I filed my taxes and forgot to enter in a w-9

You do not enter a W-9 on a tax return.  Do you mean a W-2--Wage and Income Statement?

 

You cannot change or add anything on the return that you just e-filed, nor can you stop it.  It is too late, just like when you put an envelope in a US mailbox on the corner.

 

If you left out a W-2, or a dependent, or a 1099 etc…DO NOT change your return while it is pending.  The changes will go nowhere.

 

Now you have to wait until the IRS either rejects or accepts your return.  If your return is rejected, you will be able to go into your account and make the necessary changes to your tax return and re-submit your return.

 

 If the IRS accepts your return, however, then you have to wait longer until it has been fully processed and you have received your refund.  THEN you can prepare an amended tax return and mail it in. You have to be able to work from that return exactly the way it was when it was e-filed originally.  You will need to use a form called a 1040X. You cannot e-file an amended return.  They have to be mailed, and it takes at least 2-4 months for the IRS to process an amended return.

 

 Meanwhile, DO NOT go in and start changing anything on your return in the system, or you will make a mess for yourself.  Sit tight and wait until you see what the IRS does with the return you just e-filed

I'm sorry I meant I forgot to enter a 1099-R and a 1095-C.

@pipkia01 You do not have to enter a 1095-C for healthcare.    The only one that has to be entered is a 1095A for marketplace insurance (Obamacare).   The 1099R must be entered----please re-read the reply already given---you will have to wait to add it --- you cannot change anything now while it is pending.   If it is accepted you have to wait for it to be fully processed before you can amend to add it.
