Amended Return

About Amended Return:

Amended Return is revised (of the original) tax return that has been filed which needs corrections made to it. It is filed on Federal tax Form 1040X (check here if the Form is current, but this Form has been current for many years), to correct or supplement an error on a return filed during the previous three years. The Amended Return is filed as a correction or supplement to, or replacement for, the original tax return. For example, to claim a refund for a prior year's tax return. This type of return can result in owing more or extra tax or getting a refund, depending on the mistake the taxpayer had. Main Contributor: Mike Harries.
