Can I re efile a return that has been accepted by the IRS so I can efile a 1040X?

I am not the original preparer, trying to avoid sending in by paper.

Nope

Barber! Why didn't I think of this before? Getting paid to give out bad tax advice - need I say more? I've run with scissors for years so it is a natural fit.

why does pro series allow to efile an amended state when I wasn't the original preparer of the return but not the same for the federal.

Thanks

thanks for your honesty. I guess it's one of those mysteries in the software world.

Other than postage and delivery time, what do you expect to lose with a paper 1040-X?  Either way it's going to be reviewed by at least one IRS examiner, and usually two.
