You've already filed your tax return for 2010, then realized you missed deductions or failed to include some portion of your income. Or, maybe you suddenly realized you were wrong on your filing status. What can you do now? You can file an amended return.
You can correct forms 1040, 1040A and 1040EZ by filing form 1040X. Changes that involve additional forms or schedules require that you attach the appropriate schedule or form to the amended return.
An amended return will need to be filed within three years of the original filing date - and be sure that you include the year of the return you are amending on the top of 1040X. If you are reporting additional income, a change in deductions or a change in filing status that results in additional taxes owed, pay the difference as quickly as you can to avoid any penalties.
You won't need to file an amended return for math errors or forgotten W2s. The IRS will take care of the math, correcting as they go. And, the IRS will contact you if they need any W2s you may have forgotten to include.
