If the return is rejected you can make the necessary changes and e-file again.
If the return is accepted you will have to amend your original tax return. An amended return, Form 1040X, can only be printed and mailed to the IRS if the original tax return was not e-filed. The IRS will take up to 16 weeks or longer to process an amended tax return.


Before starting to amend the tax return, wait for the tax refund to be received or the taxes due to be paid and processed by the IRS.


See this TurboTax support FAQ on amending a tax return originally completed and filed using the 2020 TurboTax online editions - https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/amending/help/how-do-i-amend-my-turbotax-online-return/01/27577

The IRS Form 1040-X for amending a 2020 tax return is scheduled to be available on 03/25/2021 (subject to change)

The 2020 federal tax return that you filed was filed in calendar year 2021.  You can amend the 2020 tax return when the Form 1040-X becomes available 03/25/2021.

 

Or are you referring to a 2019 tax return that you filed during calendar year 2020?

If so, see this TurboTax support FAQ for amending a 2019 tax return - https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/tax-topics/help/how-do-i-amend-a-2019-return-in-turbotax/01/123845...

Then as stated - The 2020 federal tax return that you filed was filed in calendar year 2021.  You can amend the 2020 tax return when the Form 1040-X becomes available 03/25/2021.
