I forgot to add a W2 forum. Can I still add a W2

It depends. If you already submitted your return you will need to see if they are rejected or accepted. If they are rejected you will be able to log back into your return and add your W-2, and fix the errors that might have caused the rejection.

If your returns were accepted you will need to file an amended return using form 1040X. You should not try to amend your return until the original return it has been fully processed and you have received your refund or your payment has cleared.

Amended returns do not “catch up” to your original return and replace them; they are processed as two separate returns.  

Amended returns have to be printed and filed by mail.  It can take the IRS up to 12 weeks or longer to process them.   If you are due a larger refund than on your original return, your amended return should only show the difference and you will receive a separate check for it.  If you owe money on your amended return, it will show only the new amount owed, you will have to mail a check with the return.
