1040X efiling

Level 2

I am trying to efile an amended return for 2019, this tax filing year. The amended return is giving me an error that I can't efile the amendment until the original efiled return has been accepted. It has. How do I enter the original efile information into the amended return so that it will allow me to efile the amendment?

If you didn't e-file the original you can't efile the amended return.

"Pitch, poke, you owe me a Coke"

Hey, if we are getting paid in Cokes these day, where do I enlist?  I'll Even change my name to COkeMaN if it will help.

I'd take payment in Dr Pepper and chocolate.

I was a Dr Pepper person for years but somewhere along the way I made the switch to Coke.  But I have always been willing to work for chocolate.

Was the original returned prepared/efiled with ProSeries?   If not, you cannot efile the amended with ProSeries.

Yes it was.

Thanks, I'll give it a try. I prepared the amendment using the old Proseries guidelines, not a big deal to delete that file and do it over the right way.

I'm trying to efile a 1040X for 2019.  I keep getting an error that the original needed to be efiled, and it was and accepted.  Help!  I really do not want to paper file.  The IRS has been terrible with processing paper returns.

Was the original return efiled using ProSeries?  If not, you can't use PS to efile the amended return - it's a (stupid, IMHO) Intuit rule.

Also, you missed the efile deadline.  Individual efile shut down on 11/21/20.  It usually opens back up around the third week of January but a specific date has not yet been announced.
