The IRS has to approve TT's version (programming) of the form first.

And you should not amend until your original return has been fully processed.  Form 1040X must be filed by mail, and takes about 4 months to process.

-- If accepted you should *wait* until your return has been processed and you receive your refund or conformation that any tax due has been paid. (If you file an amended return while you first return is being processed it can cause extended delays for both returns if two returns are in the system at the same time). In addition, if the IRS makes any change on your original return, you might end up having to amend the amendment – a sticky process that can take a year or more).

-- Then you can start the amend process.

-- Amended returns can only be mailed - allow 8-12 weeks - can take up to 16 weeks (4 months) for processing.

See this TurboTax FAQ for help with amending:

You can check the status of your amended return here but allow 3 weeks after filing for it to show up:

I am not able to view 1040x anywhere in my TT2017 deluxe online version. Where is it and what are the instructions?

I received a letter from the IRS on March 18, 2018, asking for an IRS form 8962, along with a 1040X, and they allowed me to fax the information back to them...
