    • Other Information
  11. Enter the applicable changes in the appropriate screen(s). 
    • The fields under the Correct Amount [O] column are overrides and can be used if you don't want Lacerte to calculate the changes.
 

If you e-file an amended return and later need to make further corrections by filing another amended return, Lacerte will still allow you to e-file the subsequent amended return.
