Hello. I submitted my return yesterday and then realized that I had an additional 1099misc to add as well as business expenses related to that 1099.

I filed an amendment and then it said that I may need to print and mail in return forms, but I was just sent back to the home screen and I'm not sure what to do next.


You will need to print your amended return and mail it in order to file it. Three weeks after you have mailed your amended return you can track it by visiting the following link: Where is my Amended Return or by calling the toll-free telephone number 866-464-2050.  Please see my previous answer below for instructions on how to print your amended tax return in TurboTax Online:

Amended returns (1040X) have to be printed and mailed in order to be filed. They can't be filed electronically (e-filed) per the IRS rules.  To print/download Form 1040X prepared using TurboTax Online, you will need to get back into the tax preparation to do this, to do so, follow the instructions below:

  •     Log in to your TurboTax Online account
  •     Click on My TurboTax at the top of the page
  •     Click on My Tax Timeline
  •     Under Some Things You Can Do (below your 2016 return statuses), click on Add a State (you will not prepare a state return, this just gets you back into the return to download your amended return)
  •     Once you are in your return click on My Account 
  •     Click on Print Center  to view/print/download the amended return and filing instructions

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.
