Do you have a TurboTax Online account?

We'll help you get started or pick up where you left off.

I filed my taxes way to soon, my 8889 form for my medical expenses was not yet available online. One day earlier. Is there any way I can still send my missing form?

TurboTax will not allow you to transmit an incomplete return that is missing necessary forms. Are you sure you actually transmitted your return? The transmit step is one step after paying the filing fees. If you did transmit the return, how did you get TurboTax to clear the error?

I was able to purchase  my e-return. I filed everything electronically even my w2 was sent electronically. I know when I printed out my return it did said on certain. Pages not to file. Honestly I have no idea how everything happened. Mabe my 8889 form was ready when I did file I just didnt get an email sent to me saying that it was ready until the next day.

If you have already filled your taxes the first step is to wait and see if they are Accepted or Rejected.   As Opus 17 said, TurboTax will not file if there are missing forms.

  • If they are Rejected you will be able to correct the rejection error and add your information.
  • If they are Accepted you will have to wait and file an amended tax return:
    • If you're getting a refund wait until the refund comes in.
    • If you owe money wait at least two weeks before filing the amended return.  (This is so that the IRS has time to process the original return.)

You can keep the stimulus check.  You may have to pay a portion or all of it back depending on how you posted your original return.

 

To amend a return 

Some quick ground rules:

  1. Be sure the original return was filed and accepted.
  2. DO NOT go back into the return or change anything before you start the amendment process.
  3. Gather everything you need before you start.
  4. Complete the entire amendment process before you log out.
  5. Starting with 2020 tax returns you can E-File a 1040-X amended tax return.  All prior years must be printed and mailed.

 You can correct a return that you've already filed and had accepted.  Select the year that applies and use this guide to proceed.

Select your tax year for amending instructions:
