The IRS has announced that more forms can now be amended electronically. This includes filing corrections to the Form 1040-NR, U.S. Nonresident Alien Income Tax Return, Forms 1040-SS, U.S. Self-Employment Tax Return and Forms 1040-PR, Self-Employment Tax Return – Puerto Rico. Additionally, an electronic checkbox has been added for Forms 1040, 1040-SR, 1040-NR, 1040-SS and 1040-PR to indicate that a superseding return is being filed electronically. Taxpayers can also amend their return electronically if there is a change to their filing status or to add a dependent who was previously claimed on another return.
“This initiative has come a long way from 2020 when we first launched the ability to file amended returns, which was an important milestone to help taxpayers and the tax community,” said IRS Commissioner Chuck Rettig. “This new feature will further help people needing to make corrections. This development will also assist the IRS with its inventory work on the current backlog of amended returns. This is another tool we’re using to help get us back on track.”
Further, taxpayers can use the “Where’s My Amended Return?“ online tool to check the status of their electronically-filed Form 1040-X. Forms 1040, 1040-NR and 1040-SR can still be amended electronically for tax years 2019, 2020 and 2021 along with corrected Forms 1040-SS and Form 1040-PR for tax year 2021. Finally, taxpayers still have the option to submit a paper version of the Form 1040-X and should follow the instructions for preparing and submitting the paper form.
