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?
"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 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.
I followed sjrcpa's advise and made the adjustments to the original file.
open original, select 1040x form, make needed changes, on info worksheet scroll down and change the PIN date to current date, check file amended box, review, save and efile.
I did and it is acknowledged in my program but I still get this error.
I made a copy, named it 1040X, made all the necessary adjustment in the return, changed to current date for pin entered, Checked file amended return on the client information page, corrected the duplicate ssn error.
Whether I check the file federal electronically or not I still get the error. I cannot figure out the problem.
Finally got mine to work. Made copy of original return 1st and renamed it Orig. Then went back to original return that was efiled, checked the box to efile the 1040X and all was good. Key: have to efile the 1040X on same as orign return was efiled. So different than in prior years. The help instructions were good... just should have read them thoroughly first. Thanks for everyone's help.
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.
