Good advice. My grandma has already passed along with my parents. Point well
taken though. I had a couple of earlier 1040X's which I filed on paper. Normally I
would have filed the State returns electronically. They were rejected so I just sent
these in on paper. This one is a minor's small change without a state income tax filing
requirement. I like to have dependent chilldren get their refunds ASAP. Dilemma is will
waiting for eFile software update or waiting for the IRS to drag a paper return out of a
warehouse of mail back log. Guess I have too much time on my hands when I start to
pondeer the unknowable.
The IRS may be geared up for accepting Efiled 1040X by late summer....whether Intuit will have their software ready then also.....I dunno.
CA started letting amended returns be Efiled a year or two ago...still don't think it can be done with ProSeries (unless they sneaked it in when I wasnt lookin').
ProSeries never indicated that it would be today, not sure where you read/saw that.
The IRS has said for months now that "they" would be ready to accept them on the 17th, but ProSeries never gave any date they would be ready until now. Maybe they'll surprise us and have it ready before the 26th, but as of now their target date is the 26th.
