I used the wrong federal income tax withheld from Forms W-2 and 1099 for 2915 and 2016 tax returns.

You can amend.

For 2016

  1. Sign in to your TurboTax account, if you're not already signed in. 
  2. In the 2016 Tax Year section, click Amend (change) return. 
  • Note: If you see an orange Take me to my return button, you can't amend because you haven't filed yet. Just click or tap that button to open your return and make your changes.
  • In the pop-up, click Amend using TurboTax Online
  • Click Continue on the We'll help you change (amend) your return screen.
  • Follow the on-screen directions to amend your return.
    • Don't worry if your refund drops to zero or does strange things while you are amending. Your calculations will come out correctly in the end.
  • When you're done, we'll provide instructions to print and mail your amended return because an amended return can't be e-filed.
  • For 2015

    1. Then, sign in with the login you used for your 2015 return.
    2. Click or tap 2015 Tax Year in your Tax Timeline (you may need to first click or tap "Load my Timeline" in the lower-right corner).
    3. In the Some things you can do section, click or tap Amend (change) 2015 return.
    4. Follow the onscreen instructions in the How to amend your 2015 return popup window.
