We identified an error that may have impacted some customers’ 2020 tax returns. The issue doubled an amount carried over from your 2019 state tax return involving either the refund amount or balance due. The impact on your federal return may require you to file an amendment. We fixed the issue in TurboTax and recommend that you verify your 2020 tax data to make sure you’re getting every dollar you deserve.
If your state tax return for 2020 was affected by this issue, you’ll hear from your state directly about whether or not you should amend your state return. If you don't hear from your state, then your state return wasn’t impacted.
Note: If you received additional refunds or tax due notices from the IRS, the amount reflected as a change on this amended return may be different from the final determination when the IRS processes your amended tax return.
We recommend you electronically file your amended return as soon as possible. The ability to electronically file the amendment will shut down at the end of October.
Follow the instructions to make sure your tax data is correct.
If you want to track progress on your amended return, you can use the IRS Where's My Amended Return? tracking tool. Allow at least 16 weeks for the IRS to process your amended return.
