I am trying to e-file an amended return and I did file the original. I've changed only the dependency exemption which has gone to his parents. I've followed all the "e-file amended return instructions" I can find but when I say yes to the :duplicate return - file anyway", I get the message that I have filed a return EXACTLY like the one I am filing. Yet...it has a 1040X attached.
Thank you A. Altman
i know that with Lacerte you need to populate the 1040x BEFORE you make any changes to the original return. It looks like the same process with ProSeries https://proconnect.intuit.com/community/amend-tax-return/help/how-do-i-amend-an-individual-return-us... Notice that the very last step #12 is where you finally make the changes to the return.
If at first you don't succeed, try, try again.
