I improperly filed one of my W2's. I claimed $4000 less than what I actually made. I have all th proper information now and I am just curious as to what my next step is?

I.E.  I stated I only made $2500 with company A and $28000 with company B. Upon further review, I actually made $6500 with company A and $28000 with company B.

Since you have already filed you will need 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 and re-submit your return.  If the IRS accepts your return, you MUST wait until it has been fully processed and you receive your refund or have paid your balance due.  You will need to prepare an amended tax return on a 1040X and mail it in. You cannot e-file an amended return.  They have to be mailed, and it takes about 16 weeks for the IRS to process an amended return. In the meanwhile, DO NOT go in and make any changes to your return. 3 weeks after you mailed your amendment, you can start tracking its progress at the IRS Where's My Amended Return? site. Instructions can be found here (amending becomes available mid-February:(  https://ttlc.intuit.com/replies/5114064
