Based on the information you provided, you are considered as a nonresident for the tax year of 2019.  Since you have already filed, you would need to amend your tax return.  

To amend from Form 1040 to 1040NR, here are the steps:

-If you are considered as a non-resident, as TurboTax does not support the NR form, you are recommended to use our affiliated partner, Sprintax to complete your 1040-NR filing.  

  • Download Form 1040-X from the IRS website ( see below).  On the front page of Form 1040-X, enter your name, current address, and social security number (SSN) or IRS individual taxpayer identification number (ITIN)
  • Do not enter any other information on page 1.  
  • Do not complete Parts I or II on page 2 of Form 1040X.
  • Enter in Part III the reason why you are filing Form 1040X.
  • Complete a new or corrected form 1040-NR by using Sprintax, see above.
  • Across the top of the 1040-NR, write “Amended
  • Attach the new or corrected return (Form 1040, Form 1040NR, etc. to the back of Form 1040X
