Frequently Asked Tax Questions

Electronic Filing (e-file) - Amended Returns

  1. Can I file an amended Form 1040X electronically?

Rev. date: 12/18/2014

Can I file an amended Form 1040X electronically?

The Form 1040X (.pdf), Amended U.S. Individual Income Tax Return, is not accepted electronically; only an original tax return may be electronically filed. You must file a paper Form 1040X. If you are due a refund, the IRS will issue you a check and you cannot request a direct deposit.
