Turbo Tax is holding it until the IRS starts accepting them on Feb. 12. How do I get Turbo Tax to toss the first return and replace it with a corrected one?

I need to add a 1099 to the original 1040.

You can't.   Once you e-file a return, you cannot get it back, cancel it, or make any changes to it.  Your return will stay at Pending until the IRS opens their e-file system.

 

You will have to wait until your return gets accepted or rejected to make any changes.  Do not make any changes to your e-filed return, it will not go through.  The IRS is not accepting returns until Feb. 12th, you will have to wait until then to see if your return is accepted or rejected.

 

If rejected, you can enter or change your information, then re-e-file.

 

If accepted, you would have to amend your return to make changes or add information.

 

Also, the Federal amended return (1040X), will not be available until around Feb. 28th (subject to change).
