Amended Tax Returns

Free second look for self-prepared tax returns

To amend something means to change it, and that’s exactly what you do when you file an amended tax return. You change your tax return to reflect new information.

Anytime you need to change your filing status, income, deductions or credits, you will need to file a 1040X amended tax return along with any forms or schedules that you’re changing.

Reason for filing an amended return:
  1. Your employer made a mistake on your W-2 and had to send you a corrected document
  2. You used the wrong filing status
  3. You filed your taxes and then received another W-2 or other income statement
  4. You missed claiming a credit or deduction you were eligible to receive
