Has the IRS "accepted" your income tax return? 

 

To amend your income tax return, please see the following instructions: How do I amend my federal return for a prior year?

Yes, it says ACCEPTED in green for my federal return but I don't have an option to Amend.

  6. When you reach Here's the info for your amended federal return, select Start next to the info you need to change.
  7. Continue through the screens, make the changes you need to make, and carefully answer the remaining questions to finish amending your return.

 

If you want to make changes or add a document to a tax return that has already been submitted you should follow these guidelines.

  • You must first wait until the initial return is completely processed.
  • You will have to use the same TurboTax account that you used for the original tax return.
  • Once you begin your amendment, you'll see your original return. 
    • The refund calculator will start new at $0 and only reflect the changes in the refund or tax due
    • Only make changes to the areas of your return that need amending.
  • You have three years from the date you filed your return or two years after you paid the tax due (whichever is later) to file an amendment

When I click on 2021 the Amend option is there but not for 2022.  I filed yesterday and it says accepted.

If you used our CD/download product, sign back into your return and select “Amend a filed return.” Form 1040-X. Please also be sure your CD/Download program is up to date.

 

If the IRS accepted your tax return, then you will need to wait until you have received your refund, if applicable, and then amend that return to make changes, if needed. Amended returns have to be printed and mailed in and take up to 16 weeks to be processed.  
If accepted, wait until you have received your refund or taxes due paid, then you can follow the instructions below on how to amend your tax return. 

 

Please see the TurboTax FAQ links below for more information:

If you have already e-filed or mailed the return, then you will need to wait until the IRS has accepted or rejected that return before you can make any changes.  

If they reject it, then just make the needed changes and re-submit the return.  

If they accept it,  then you will need to wait until you have received your refund, if applicable, and then amend that return to make changes, if needed. Amended returns have to be printed and mailed in and take up to 16 weeks to be processed.   

If accepted, wait until you have received your refund, then you can go here and get instructions for amending that return.
