I Forgot To Include Something on A Return I Just Submitted. Can I Update My Return While eSmart Tax Says It Is “Submitted?”

We’re all human.  Making mistakes is common and even though efiling your return significantly reduces the risk of making mistakes on your taxes, something may still happen.  Perhaps you got a form in the mail today that needs to be documented on your return.  Maybe you just noticed that an amount from a W-2 got typo-ed.  What can you do if you just submitted your return and eSmart Tax says it’s “submitted”?

When must you file a paper return?

Well, here it is, that dreaded season of the year called, “Tax Time”.  That’s like saying, “Here comes Trouble, with a capital ‘T’”, right?  So, you gather up all of your paperwork.  You know, like your W-2’s, your 1099’s from your bank or broker, your 1098-T from your school, and, oh yeah, your kids’ Social Security cards.  Then, you load all of that stuff up into your wheelbarrow (well, not really, but it feels like that, doesn’t it?), and you trudge into your local Liberty Tax office to file your tax return.  Your preparer diligently asks you questions about your last name and your kids’ last names, if different, and asks questions for Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) purposes.
