2016 Mississippi Dividends Amend Instructions

Certain married taxpayers filing combined in Mississippi, who received dividends in Mississippi, may need to amend their tax return.  Although we fixed the issue in TurboTax, we want to make sure your return is complete and accurate. 

You may be affected if all of the following apply to you:

  • You filed your Mississippi state tax return prior to March 27, 2017 AND
  • You used the Married – Combined filing status on your Mississippi state tax return AND
  • You received tax exempt dividends 
If you are affected, you may have underpaid your state tax. You may need to amend your state tax return.
