Car repairs and can i amend last years taxes

Hi ajunglebum!  Not fun to have costly car repairs!  You can definitely amend your taxes.  If you used TurboTax to prepare your return, that is very simple just like when you prepared.

When you work on the Vehicle section within your self employed business you will need to consider the IRS law for the vehicle expense according to the method you chose for your business miles.  Here is a great article on business use of personal vehicles,

When working on your amended tax return, if you have any questions reach out to TurboTax Live.

If you entered in your information and prepared your return yourself there is no charge for you to prepare and file your amended return.
