The only way you can file an amended return is to mail it.

If you don't mail it, the IRS will never get a copy, so it would be as if you never amended at all.

So I can decide if I want to mail it. I wasn't sure if I amended it online they would know since I did it online. I amended return but there was a small difference but I don't think I want to mail it in.

No information is transmitted from the software to the IRS when you work on an amended return.

The IRS says-“The IRS may correct mathematical or clerical errors on a return and may accept returns without certain required forms or schedules. In these instances, there's no need to amend your return. However, do file an amended return if there's a change in your filing status, income, deductions, or credits. “

If you decide not to mail it and not to amend then you should delete the amended return so it won't transfer into next year.

See this TurboTax support FAQ for canceling an amended return using the online editions - https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/amending/help/how-do-i-cancel-or-undo-an-amended-return-in-turbota...

 

Sign onto your TurboTax online account - https://myturbotax.intuit.com/

Scroll down and click on Add a State.  This will take you back to the 2019 online tax return.

What should I do once that I clicked on Add a State. I'm trying to cancel an "amended federal return" that was accepted. I don't want to mail it, but I don't know how to remove it. And I also don't know if that's going to affect my California tax return.

To open your return back up, you would simply log back into your TurboTax account. If you don't see the "Cancel" button on the left hand menu, try logging out of your TurboTax account, clear cache and delete cookies. Then try logging back into your TurboTax account to see if you can then see the "Cancel" button. Please let us know if this works.

Hello, thanks for the help, but unfortunately, it didn't work. In my "Tax Home" there's a message that says, "Brian, your 2020 amended federal return was accepted" if I go to the menu on the left, there's nothing to cancel it.
