Cannot cancel my amendment

I Started an amendment, I followed the steps provided on the website to cancel it, but I never got to the page that asks if I like to cancel. Suddenly, it said I'm done and e1040-X is ready.

I don't wanna do an amendment and don't want anything happens. What should I do?

Go back into your account (Your screen might be different and may appear similar to the first screenshot below) and follow the Step 2 in the FAQ instructions, where you go to Review keep selecting continue until you see: "You're Done! Print and Mail Your Returns"

  • After pressing Done and you see "You did it! Your taxes are amended.", follow Step 3 in the FAQ above for canceling an amendment.
  • It will ask you "Have you already filed this amended return?". Select No and Continue
  • The next screen will ask "Do you need to change anything else?". Scroll all the way down.
  • You should see "Nevermind, I don't need to amend.". Click the Cancel button next to it. (Screenshot attached)
  • Click Done and it will then proceed with asking you if you want to delete (or remove) amendment. Click it and you should be all set.
  •  Save & Sign out. 

Hope this helps!

The good news is even if you started an amendment, nothing will be affected permanently because you have to print and mail to file an amendment, you cannot e-file. Your original return is still the last one on file.

Since you already filed, you need to get back into your Return to get to the part where you can undo what you've started. Start by clicking on Add a State to get you into the return from your Tax Timeline, then go on to step three outlined in the instructions about and click on the Federal Tab and continue on through the steps. See if this helps.
