What are some reasons that an Amended Return cannot be filed electronically?
Amended Returns must be filed by paper for the following reasons:
- Only Tax Year 2021 1040 and 1040-SR returns can be amended electronically at this time. Amended Returns for any other tax years or tax types must be filed by paper.
- There must be a record of an "original" electronically filed return for Tax Year 2021. If the original Tax Year 2021 return was filed by paper, it must be amended by paper.
- If the Primary Social Security number is different from the one provided on the Original Return, then the Amended Return must be filed by paper.
- If the Spouse's Social Security number (if applicable) is different from the one provided on the Original Return, then the Amended Return must be filed by paper.
- If the Filing Status differs from the Filing Status on the Original Return, then the Amended Return must be filed by paper.
- If the refund amount on the amended return is $0, the amended return cannot be e-filed.
- You cannot e-file an amended return to update your banking information, your mailing address or your filing status.
Can I amend my return more than once?
Yes, you can amend your return multiple times. Our program supports the electronic filing of one federal amended return. All subsequent amended returns need to be printed, signed and mailed.
How can I check on the status of my electronic filed Amended Return?
If you file your amended return electronically, you can use the Where's My Amended Return? online tool to check the status of your amended return. Where's My Amended Return? updates once a day, usually at night. You can check it daily.
