Modify existing tax year with adjusted prior year return

Is there a way to modify an existing tax year that I've started with a modified return of a previous year (one different than the one I referenced when I started the existing return?  For example if I need to revise last year's taxes, can I re-reference that prior year return in my present year return that I've already started?  Or do I have to start over with a new current year return?

Modify existing tax year with adjusted prior year return

No.  You can only transfer 1 time before you start 2018.  If you want to transfer from the Amended return you would have to clear your return and start over or start a new return if you are using the Desktop program.

 

if you are using the Online version and want to clear and start over to transfer I can tell you how.

 

Otherwise you will have to enter the changes into your return manually.

Thanks.

 

Seems like a pretty straightforward feature to add.  Where can I suggest it?
