You cannot change or add anything on the return that you just e-filed, nor can you stop it.  It is too late, just like when you put an envelope in a US mailbox on the corner.

 

If you left out a W-2, a 1099G, or a dependent, or a 1099 etc…DO NOT change your return while it is “pending.”  The changes will go nowhere.

 

Now you have to wait until the IRS either rejects or accepts your return.  If your return is rejected, you will be able to go into your account and make the necessary changes to your tax return and re-submit your return. 

 

 If the IRS accepts your return, however, then you have to wait longer until it has been fully processed and you have received your refund.  THEN you can prepare an amended tax return and e-file or mail  it in. You have to be able to work from that return exactly the way it was when it was e-filed originally.  You will need to use a form called a 1040X.

 

  Meanwhile, DO NOT go in and start changing anything on your return in the system, or you will make a mess for yourself.  Sit tight and wait until you see what the IRS does with the return you just e-filed

Just in case we're misinterpreting what you filed.

__________________________________________________

Did you file you OWN taxes 2 days ago?...or your son's taxes 2 days ago?

 

IF you filed your son's....yeah, you have to wait, and then maybe amend them later

 

But if you filed your own taxes 2 days ago...that has nothing to do with your Son's W-2.  You don't put yoru son's W-2 on your own tax return.

Hubby & I filed earlier this week. Then our 16 year old dependent received his W-2 (we forgot he had done a summer internship).

 

So I just wanted to make sure that:

1) I don’t have to amend our tax return.

2) I should just file a tax return for him so he gets what was withheld from his earnings.

You cannot put your sons W-2 on your return.  It can only go on his own return of he is required to file or if there was tax withholding.

 

2020 Filing requirements for dependents.

Single dependents— (Not age 65 or older or blind)

You must file a return if any of the following apply.
1. Your unearned income was more than $1,100.
2. Your earned income was more than $12,400.
3. Your gross income was more than the larger of—
a. $1,100, or
b. Your earned income (up to $12,050) plus $350.

Or Dependent had net earnings from self-employment of at least $400. 

However, if any tax was withheld, then Dependent might want to file anyway to get a refund of the tax withheld.

Also, a person that CAN be a dependent cannot claim him/her self and must check the box that says that another taxpayer can claim them (whether or not that taxpayer actually claims him/her).

Note: your state filing requirements might be different than the federal.

@macuser_22 @SteamTrain Good catch!  I thought the user meant they filed the son's return and got another W-2.  Thanks!
