That is going to change your CGS calculation. If your tax liability changes as a result (which it probably will), then you need to file an amended return.

Only one item? That's all? How much money are you talking about here? A $5 item? A $5,000 dollar item? Depending on the amount, there may be no need to amend anything for just one measly item of inventory.

I have filed a State amended tax return for 2017

How did you change the inventory count on the state return, without changing it on the federal return first? Did you amend via some method other than TurboTax maybe?

and if your state has an income tax, if that tax liability changes you'll need to amend it, too.    some states, like Illinois, require an amended federal return to be filed.
