ELECTRONIC FILING OF FORM 1040-X COMING THIS SUMMER

29 May 2020

IR 2020-107, 5/28/2020

In an Information Release, the IRS has announced that later this summer individual taxpayers will be able to file their Form 1040-X, Amended U.S Individual Income Tax Return, electronically using available tax software products.

Currently, taxpayers must mail a completed Form 1040-X to the IRS for processing.

When the electronic filing option becomes available, only tax year 2019 Forms 1040, U.S. Individual Income Tax Return, and 1040-SR, U.S. Tax Return for Seniors, will be able to be amended electronically. And, in general, taxpayers will still have the option to submit a paper version of the Form 1040-X.
