Question

How do I delete an amended return?

Answer

If you accidentally generated Form 1040X in a return, or if Form 1040X was prepared incorrectly, you may want to remove Form 1040X.

To delete Form 1040X from a return, follow these steps.

  1. Open Screen Amend in the Separate Filings folder.
  2. Choose Edit > Delete Screen Data.
  3. Remove the changes that were made on the applicable input screens so that the return calculates as it was originally reported. Consult a printed copy of the original tax return, if necessary.
  4. Choose File > Print Preview.
  5. After the Preview window opens, click the close button.
