For one you cannot amend a 2019 tax return that has not yet been filed and accepted by the IRS.  The IRS will not be accepting a 2019 tax return until on and after January 27.  Your federal tax return, Form 1040, has been finalized for filing.

 

Second, the Form 1040X for amending a tax return that has already been filed and accepted by the IRS will not be finalized and available until 01/29/2020.

The projected availability date for the Form 1040X in TurboTax has been moved back about 3 times.  It was first moved to 2/05/20, then to 2/12/20, but is now showing as being available in TurboTax on 2/20/20. You can check occasionally in the table linked below.

 

If you haven't yet received your Federal refund,  you should wait on the Federal refund to arrive first anyway before amending.   And each year, we see users who receive an additional late W-2 or 1099 in February that they weren't expecting or forgot about so one would certainly not want to have to amend an amended return, which is a huge headache.
