JUST BECAUSE I HAVE UNEMPLOYMENT ON MY RETURN DOESN’T MEAN THATS THE REASON IM AMENDING IT, BUT YOUR ONLINE SOFTWARE DOES NOT ALLOW ME TO AMEND MY RETURN BECAUSE IT THINKS I WANT TO AMEND IT BECAUSE OF THE UNEMPLOYMENT TAX! I NEED TO AMEND MY RETURN AND THE LONGER I HAVE TO WAIT THE LONGER ITS GOING TO TAKE FOR ME TO GET MY RETURN. BS.
You have up to three years from the due date of your return to amend or change something that was reported on your original return. It is understandable that you want to get it taken care of as soon as possible. However, due to the many changes in the tax laws that have been passed recently, the TurboTax program is still being updated.

The IRS approved amending with 1040-x electronically 2 weeks ago. Why the delay with TurboTax? Other major tax companies implemented the changes over a week ago. If it’s not unemployment related, I should be able to amend!! Why am I being blocked from doing so? Your answer is not sufficient.
