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”?
return to the IRS is like sliding your return in the “flat letters” mailbox at
the post office. After you have
completed the checkout process and received an order number, you will not be
able to make any changes to your return.
If the efile is
rejected by the IRS or state tax agency for any reason, you can sign in to your
eSmart Tax account and make changes to your return at that point.
However, if your tax
return is accepted by the IRS, you will need to file an amended return (Form
1040X) if you must make changes. The
experts in our powerful network of professionals at Liberty Tax Service can help
you file an amended return. Find a Liberty Tax
