2019 Mississippi Wages

Because of an error in a TurboTax calculation, you may have understated your income on your Mississippi tax return, leading to a possible underpayment of state income tax.

We fixed the issue in TurboTax and we want to make sure your state tax return is complete and accurate. We recommend you check to determine whether there's a change in the tax due amount, and, if necessary, amend your state tax return. There are no additional fees for checking your TurboTax return or for preparing an amendment. Mississippi has extended the payment due date for income tax to July 15, 2020. If you have additional tax due, pay the amount by the extended deadline to avoid penalties and interest.

We continuously strive to provide correct and accurate calculations in our TurboTax products. Sometimes that effort results in our finding errors after returns have been filed. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you. If you need additional help, we’ve provided contact info below.

To amend your return in TurboTax, follow these step-by-step instructions:

  1. Write down the original refund or balance due amount for your Mississippi state income taxes. We recommend you check the paper/PDF copy of your return, or your banking records to verify the correct amount.
  2. Launch TurboTax and open your 2019 return.
  3. To check your return, you'll compare the balance due/refund amount from Step 1 with the amount TurboTax now displays in your Mississippi tax due/refund box at the top of the screen. If the amount is different, the W-2 wages were automatically fixed, and we suggest you follow the steps below to amend your Mississippi tax return.
