    First Do Not Change anything on your original filed Return. Just wait until your return is either rejected or accepted. If it is rejected, just make the necessary corrections and resubmit. However, if it is accepted, then you will need to prepare an amended return and your amended return Must be Mailed.

    The IRS amended tax form 1040X will not be available for filing and Mailing until Feb 9, 2012 so there's no hurry. Wait for your tax refund assuming you e-filed and are getting a refund and MAKE NO changes to your present return until you are ready to file the 1040X amended Return. Repeat: Your amended return Must be Mailed and The IRS requires 8 to 12 weeks to process amended returns. State timeliness vary

    Things to Do Before you Amend Your Return.
    1. Print a copy of your Unchanged Accepted Tax Return before you make any changes you’ll want that for your records.
    2. Save your Unchanged Accepted Tax Return as Both a PDF and .tax2011 file.

      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.
