I received a Form 1098-T after I filed my return. Do I need to amend my return if I am interested in claiming education credit?
- If you have just received your 1098-T and you have already filed, but you are still interested in claiming education credit, you’ll need both:
- Your original Form 1040
- A new 1040 with the corrections
- Fill in the 1040X with your the old and new calculations, as well as the difference between the two.
- Print and mail your 1040X and mail it to the IRS. You can’t e-file 1040X.
It’ll probably take the IRS 8-12 weeks to process your amended return. Keep in mind that if you amend your federal return, you might also need to amend your state return.
