I think I may have messed up trying to do an amendment on my 2016 taxes. I filed then the very next day I got another W2 I forgot about. I entered the new info, unfortunately without reading the instructions on how to do the amendment, and went all the way to the end of the questions etc. I have already gotten my original return but now don't know if I messed everything up online and really don't know if I have done what needs to be done before printing and mailing the amendment. Please help!

You don't say which version you are using. If you are using an online version, then you likely added the 2016 W-2 to your 2017 tax return. If so, delete the W-2 from Tax Tools, Tools, Delete a form

 

You have to go through the 2016 amend link to make changes to the 2016 return.

 

  • Sign into your return
  • Scroll down to the 'Your tax return & documents' section
  • Select the 2016 tax year and then the 'Amend (change) 2016 return link
