I have 2 jobs, I got my w2 from one employer and already filed it for a return, can I still file for my other one when it comes or did I have to do them at the same time?

You were supposed to enter them on the same tax return.  That is why we try to advise people to wait and not be in such a rush to e-file so early.  Employers, banks, brokers and Social Security have until the end of January/early February to send the documents you need to prepare your tax return.

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

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 mail it in. You will need to use a form called a 1040X. You cannot e-file an amended return.  They have to be mailed, and it takes at least 2-4 months for the IRS to process an amended return.  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
