e-filing

I filed Form 4868 on 7/15/2020 for a MFJ couple.  When I printed Form 9325 it indicates that a 1040 was accepted, Boxes 1 and 2. However, Box 6 is also checked stating that Form 4868 was also accepted.

When I update my clients' return with the final amounts, I get a message that the 1040 has already been accepted and that I have to submit an amended return, Form 1040X.  How do I proceed?

If the 9325 that you printed back in July shows Boxes 1 and 2 checked, sounds like you filed the actual return along with the extension somehow (which is weird since I would think youd still have errors hanging out there if the return wasnt ready to file).

Id "undo" the last final entries that were just made, open and activate the 1040X form, then add the last final figures and Efile it as an amended return.

I would start by going into your EF homebase and print a history report to see if you did actually already transmit the return.  If so, amending is your only route.

ex-AllStar, ex-Lutefisk taste taster, ex-ACME product tester
and ex marks the spot where those rocks and anvils hit me.

Thanks IRonMaN!  I prepared and filed a 1040X for this client.  1st time this happened with ProSeries - I've been a user long before e-filing was mandated.

Hope today isn't horrible for you.

Thanks Lisa.  Prepared and filed a 1040X for my client.  1st time this situation arose with ProSeries - I've been a user long before e-filing was mandated.

Hope today isn't horrible for you!
