In 2019, I listed a carryover of $46,000 in charitable donations but it should have been $74,000. I am now filling in my 2020 taxes and I am wondering if I can correct this omission by adding it now or do I need to file an amended 2019 return?
You need to amend 2019. You must amend to correct previous errors.

Thank you for your response. Before I amend the 2019 return, I am trying to figure out why the 2018 carryover did not populate the carryover field while the 2016 and 2017 fields are filled in. I actually traced it back to 2018 where line 27A on Carryover worksheet was blank. I am unsure of why it is blank as the information is listed in the TurboTax interview. A large carryover deduction was taken in 2018 however it still seems like it should have been listed. At this point, I am totally confused. I don't know if I am right or I am overlooking some sort of calculation that TurboTax software has made. Really need to speak with someone who can help me on this.
