How can I amend my return to remove my personal exemption on 1040 EZ?I have already filed and I claimed my personal exemption but I don't need it. It won't change the amount of my refund. My parents need to claim me on their 1040.
First, click here for instructions on how to file your amended return and start the process.
Note: Amended returns take up to 16 weeks to process by the IRS (they have to be printed and mailed), so there is no chance your return will be amended in time before the April deadline. Because you mistakingly claimed yourself, your SSN will be locked in the e-file system until the amendment is processed (even after its processed, there is no guarantee that the IRS will update the e-file system in any timely fashion).
