IRS mind boggling load of paperwork

I just had one careless mistake in filing tax return. My kid forgot to check the box "SOME ELSE CAN CLAIM ME AS DEPENDENT". And to fix this problem.... to amend the return by 1040X... it is a huge drama!!


Original claim was filed using free online version of TT.


I use TT Premiere and it claims to be able to help file amend even if the return was not filed via TT ...but it cant seem to figure it out. 


IRS form 1040x comes with 20 page instructions that wants you to fill everything with information that does not exist!! I just need to make minor change.... i think i will just ignore and let IRS call on.


Have anyone used 1040x multiple times and can give some recommendations? than kyou
