I just filed and realized I forgot a large charitable donation

Is there a way to add it even though I e-filed last night?

In order to add the charitable donation you forgot to enter, you will need to wait to see if the e-filed return was accepted or rejected.

If the e-filed return was rejected, you can fix the error and add the charitable contribution, then re-transmit your return.  Go back into TurboTax and continue your return.  The program will show you the errors and have you correct and re-submit.

If the e-filed return was accepted, you will need to file an amended return.  Here are the steps to amend your 2015 tax return.  Also, you cannot e-file an amended return, you must mail it.

In TurboTax - sign-in to (TurboTax Online) or open (TurboTax Cd/Download/Desktop) your 2015 return.

  1. Type “amend” in the search bar and hit enter
  2. Click on “Jump to amend” (see image below)
  3. This will bring you to the “We’ll help you change (amend) your return” screen (see image below)
  4. Click “Continue” and answer the questions

Submitting the return for filing is just like dropping it into a mailbox - you can not get it back or change it.

Once you submit  and find that you need to make a change, you will have to wait until the IRS either accepts or rejects the return. If the return is rejected by the IRS, then you can make the necessary changes and resubmit it. If the return is accepted, then the only way to change it is to prepare an amended return and file it by mail.
