Current Year 1040X - Current amounts column not populating

Highlighted
Level 2

I am trying to complete a current year 1040X for a client and Column A isn't populating with the current amounts. I feel like in the past there was a box to check to populate Column A, but I can't find anything on the form.

I'm not actually making any changes to the amounts on the original return, the only reason I need to file amended is because my client's return was rejected since they apparently used the Non-Filers Tool to update their direct deposit information. 

 

How do I get Column A to populate?

Did you activate the 1040X, click the year box at the top, then go back and make the changes?

If the original return was a zero filing, then Column A wouldnt have anything in it....would it?

Oh of course. I was thinking the original return was the one I prepared, but of course it isn't. 

Thank you!

I pressed the box for 2018 in 1040X, then put in my changes. Nothing got populated. I've done many amended returns, I am doing it in the right order.

Greta, you may need to do the REFRESH updates if you haven't done that with 2018 lately, I know I had issues with 2018 amended returns last month and I had to go through REFRESH updates to make it work properly.

They also stuck a 2019 box on that 1040X (no clue why!) so be sure you are checking the 2018 box, not the first one that says 2019.
