How to deliver amended tax return

I amended by return and printed out both California and Federal. Do I need to mail both of them myself? The CA says to mail with a copy of my federal; does that mean I need to print 2 copies of the federal?

How to deliver amended tax return

Yes, you will need to mail the federal and California amended returns.  Please make sure that when you mail them, you send them via a service that provides proof of delivery (certified mail with return receipt, USPS Priority or Express mail, UPS, or any carrier that provides tracking).

For the federal amended return:

When you have prepared your amended return and are ready to mail Form 1040-X you should include the following forms:
  • Form 1040-X
  • The new (amended) Form 1040
  • Any forms or schedules that were added or changed as a result of preparing the amendment

The mailing address for you state and situation can be found at https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/i1040x.pdf.  Look under Where to File on page 14. 

California does require that you attach a copy of the federal amended return, so you will need two copies (plus one for your records).   The mailing address for your amended California return can be found at https://www.ftb.ca.gov/aboutFTB/add.shtml
