Try these steps -
If you filed, it is like dropping it into a mailbox - you cannot get it back.
You'll have to wait until your return is either accepted or rejected.
- If rejected, you can make any necessary changes.
- If accepted, you'll need to amend your return.
- To avoid unnecessary delays, do not amend until your original return has been fully processed. You will need to print and mail the amendment.
- Allow 8-12 weeks for processing.
See this TurboTax FAQ for help with amending.
You can check the status of your amended return here, but allow 3 weeks after filing for it to show up.

thank you for the response - my issue is in turbo tax it will not let me print the federal amendment, it keeps looping back and telling me i have it set to direct debit but there is nowhere to change it. I just want to print and mail the federal.
I appreciate the help - but unfortunately I am in the amendment process. Spent almost an hour with a turbo tax person going through it and they were also unable to get me out of the loop or even print out the amended returns. For some reason I'm stuck with direct debit for federal and can't undo it which then just loops me back to the ready to file screen over and over. We tried adding a state to back door the setup which did not work and i tried deleting the amendment and doing it over which also did not help. All i wanted to do was add a 1099 that came in late. Thank you again for the help and any assistance is greatly appreciated.
It depends. Amended returns must be mailed. I recommend mailing the federal and state (if applicable) tax returns via certified mail in order to trace when they were received.
