I have a question/complaint about the soon-to-be new ability to e-file amended returns.

 

Can all Individual Amended filing types be e-filed?
Only an e-filed Form 1040 or 1040-SR can be amended. An original return that was paper filed cannot have an e-filed amended return. The original return must have been e-file through your ProSeries software.

That is an Intuit-imposed restriction, rather than an IRS limitation.   WHY is Intuit doing that?  Does Intuit hate its customers that much?

That pretty much eliminates almost all of the usefulness of being able to e-file the amended returns.  Most of my amending is from tax returns that were done by other preparers.

Intuit strikes again.  Yet another reason to hate Intuit and look into other software.

The post is back from the dead.  Bill does bring up an excellent point about not being able to e-file a non-ProSeries return.

@Matt B 

still no response back about this, IRS does not have this as a limitation and none of the other tax software seems to have this limitation either...so is your FAQ wrong? Or are ProSeries users just getting the shaft on this?

Lisa, I suspect that @Matt B  , @IntuitAustin  and @IntuitBettyJo  must all be in the hospital with COVID.

That is the only explanation I can think of when a customer's question is repeatably ignored for almost two weeks with no response.

I'm guessing that this is like an enhancement request.  You have to post it to the correct page and then wait for 50 cheers before someone at Intuit will pass it on to the correct team for proper analysis.

Hi! I apologize this didn't get answered sooner. I spoke with Austin about the topic but details are still in flux and changing by the day as our Development team works on adding this feature in. 

More details and instructions will be released next week once its released in ProSeries.

Thanks for a reply.

I find it interesting that Drake (a lower-cost software) released the update for e-filed Amended returns on August 6th (two weeks ago today) while the Intuit Developers still don't even know how things will work whenever they get around to adding that ability.

But there is a very good reason for that ........................................................................................

Well, I'm sure someone at Intuit can think of one eventually.
