I received a 1098-T after I filed my return. Do I need to amend my return?
Yes. If you received a Form 1098-T, you might have qualified deductible tuition expenses. You should report the expenses on your return.
Since you've filed your return, use Form 1040X to correct or add additional tax information to your return. Submit Form 1040X to the IRS. Form 1040X will be your new return. It will change your original return to include new information. To prepare the Form 1040X, you need both:
Form 1040X will ask for the old and new calculations, as well as the difference between the two.
You can prepare Form 1040X using the H&R Block online program, but you can't e-file it. Form 1040X must be mailed to the IRS. Or, you can get Form 1040X at www.irs.gov. Allow the IRS 8-12 weeks to process your amended return. If you amend your federal return, you might also need to amend your state return. Contact your state tax agency for more information.
