Question

I have a question about filing an amended tax return. Is filing Form 1040X the way to add an additional W-2 if I’ve already filed my return?

Answer

Regarding filing an amended tax return, if you’ve already filed your return, you can’t add another W-2 to your return. Instead, proceed by filing form 1040X to amend your return. Mail the completed 1040X to the IRS.
