What if I filed my taxes stating that I contributed to an IRA, but I actually did not contribute?

This question pertains to the tax year ending Apr 18, 2017.  I have already submitted and received my federal and state refunds on a return where I declared that I had contributed $5,500 to a non-deductible IRA.  But finally, I decided not to do that.  Do I need to do anything? Amended return? etc?

Hi there, 

If this error changes your bottom line (taxes you owe or amount of your refund), you can file an amended return. You'll need to wait until your return is accepted. Then, you can follow the steps found here: https://ttlc.intuit.com/questions/3061514-how-do-i-amend-a-2016-return-in-turbotax

Here's a little more info to help you determine if you need to amend: https://ttlc.intuit.com/replies/3318732
