I had filed my taxes already with turbo tax and I had got one more w2 in the mail and added it to my taxes and now it’s for the federal it’s saying it’s ready to be mailed what does tha


Please see this TurboTax FAQ for adding another form after you have already filed your tax return:

Don't worry!

If you got another form like a W-2 after filing, or you forgot to add something, you can still fix your return.

You'll want to determine if the IRS or state has Accepted the information you already filed. If the IRS or state has accepted it, you will see "Accepted" as the status of your return when you sign in to TurboTax (in Tax Home) or when you open the CD/Download Turbotax software. If they have accepted your return, then you may need to amend your tax return.

If your return was Rejected, you can add the missing form or information, correct the reason for rejection and then resubmit again.

If you forgot to add something like dependent information, a deduction you qualify for, or even using the wrong filing status, it can have a significant impact to your tax bottom line (your refund or amount due).  Some info doesn't make a difference monetarily, but can still be something the IRS/state needs corrected. Your best bet is to correct (amend) the information and send it back to the IRS or State.

NOTE :  IRS Form 1040X just became available today from the IRS and TurboTax is updating the programs.  You will be able to file an amended tax return as soon as the updates have been completed.

Additional information about filing 1040X:

·         Watch for the refund meter – it will zero out when you begin to amend only showing the difference between the original return and the amended one.

·         TurboTax does not receive IRS updates regarding the status of amended returns, please see this IRS link: Where's My Amended Return?

When you have prepared your amended return and are ready to mail Form 1040-X you should include the following forms:

·         The new (amended) Form 1040X

·         Any forms or schedules that were added or changed as a result of preparing the amendment

You will need to wait until your original tax return is processed by the IRS before filing an amended return. If you are receiving a refund, you should wait until the check is issued or you receive your direct deposit.   

Please note that 1040-X cannot be e-filed - you will need to mail a paper return.  It takes the IRS at least 2 - 3 months (and sometime up to 6 months) to process amended returns.  Also, depending on whether the changes affect your numbers, you may also be required to file an amended return with your state.  

The mailing address for your amended tax form 1040Xcan be found at Where to File Addresses for Taxpayers and Tax Professionals Filing Form 1040X

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.
