Can I electronically file an injured spouse form after e-filing my taxes already

I efiled my Federal Taxes but forgot to file an injured spouse form.  Can I file an Injured Spouse form separately electronically?

    No, you have to print it out and mail it in.

      So is my understanding that if you qualify for injured spouse and answer all those questions you end up having to fill out a form manually and mail it in anyways?

      What a waste of time!

        You only have to print and send it manually if you forget to add it to your return before e-filing.

            saadia, if you filed your return without the injured spouse form, wait until your refund is paid and see what the damages are.  If you are unfairly penalized for past debts of your spouse, you can download the injured spouse form from the IRS web site, fill it out, and mail it in.  It requests that the IRS re-evaluate your situation and pay back your share of the refund that they kept.  It takes about 12-14 weeks to get an answer.  Here is the form and instructions,

              I am unsure about being able to amend your return simply because the IRS has not accepted or denied it yet.  Your best bet would be to contact the IRS directly and ask how this should be handled.  FYI.  You may file the Injured Spouse Allocution electronically with your 1040 or 1040A.
              • Lish, an injured spouse form may be sent in by mail at any time up to 3 years after the original tax return is filed.  In this particular case, amending the return will actually take longer for the IRS to process than sending in the form separately by mail, and for this person, the form can never be e-filed because even if she filed an amended return with the form, amended returns can not be e-filed. Probably the best thing to do is wait for the refund to be paid.  If it is not garnished, then do nothing.  If it is garnished, print and mail the injured spouse form separately.  (It is one of the few forms that can be filed separately without being attached to a tax return.)

              People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

              1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
              2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
              3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
              4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
              5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
