I need to amend my state return

Select your version of TurboTax for instructions on how to amend your state return without amending your federal.

  1. Sign in to the TurboTax account containing the return you need to amend.
  2. Scroll down to under Your tax returns documents, select Amend (change) 2018 return, then Amend using TurboTax Online.
  3. Select the reason you’re amending and Continue.
  4. Answer the questions about your federal return (you may not have any changes). You'll eventually reach the Let's get started on your state taxes screen where you can begin amending your state return with your changes.

Note: The refund meter is reset and may show odd numbers until all of your changes are entered. When you're finished with your changes, the refund meter shows any additional amount owed or refunded to you. This amount is in addition to your original payment or refund shown on your originally filed tax return.

When finished you will see a copy of your amended return. Print two copies, one for your files and one to mail in. The refund meter shows your new refund or amount due to be mailed in.

Mail one copy of your amended return to your state address listed on your amend instructions. Processing of amended returns can take several months.

Locate and open the tax file you need to amend. Before amending, select Online at the top and then Check for Updates to be sure you have the latest software. (On Mac, select TurboTax at the top and then Check for Updates).

  1. Go to the Federal Taxes tab (if using the Home and Business Product, go to the Personal tab) and then select the Other Tax Situations tab.
  2. On the Other Tax Situations screen, scroll down to Other Tax Forms and select Start next to Amend a return.
  3. On the We'll help you change (amend) your return screen, click Continue.
  4. On the Did you already file your return? screen, answer Yes and select Continue. Then select the reason you need to amend your return.
  5. On the What do you need to change on your return? screen, scroll down to State return and select Update.

Begin amending your state return with your changes.

Note: The refund meter is reset and may show odd numbers until all of your changes are entered. When you're done with your changes, the refund meter shows any additional amount owed or that should be refunded to you. This amount is in addition to your original payment or refund shown on your originally filed tax return.

When finished you will see a copy of your amended return. Print two copies, one for your files and one to mail in. The refund meter shows your new refund or amount due to be mailed in.

Mail one copy of your amended return to your state address listed on your amend instructions. Processing of amended returns can take several months.
