I need to amend my 2017 taxes for social security resion
Why are you posting in this thread--are you trying to get/pay for PLUS? Normally it's best to start one's own new thread, or it can get confusing with multiple users. Are you asking how to get the *.tax2017 data file to amend? Have you already downloaded the free 2017 "amend software"?
This is a thread on how to pay to unlock and download a 2017 return file, and the original poster said he was already in PLUS and just needs to pay. You haven't said anything about "your" situation. The minimum to unlock a 2017 return is to pay for a 2018 return in Free Edition upgraded to PLUS for 19.99 by credit/debit card. Have you already done the upgrade and are now in PLUS, and just need to pay? Please answer all of the questions below:
- What is the story on your 2018 return? Has it already been filed, or is it still in preparation? Or was it prepared elsewhere?
- What edition are you currently in now--Free Edition, PLUS, etc.?
- Are the 2017 and 2018 returns in the SAME account?
We can give you more info on how to upgrade/pay when you answer those.
Once you have the 2017 tax data file and the 2017 amend software, here's how to amend a 2017 online return:
