File an Amended Return Online with H&R Block

With H&R Block, you can file an amended tax return online. Once you’ve been notified by the IRS that they have received and accepted your original return for 2017, then you can amend your tax return online. If you filed your 2017 return with our online program, you can prepare an amended return with us. Keep in mind that this won’t change your existing return. It’ll create an amendment to it by adding new data.

To file an amended return online:

  1. Go to the Overview of the H&R Block Online product.
  2. Choose the option to file an amended return. (This will be visible only after you e-file your original return, and it’s been accepted by the IRS.)
  3. Follow the steps on the screen to amend the return.

Completing Your Amended Tax Return Online

After you finish making an amendment to your online tax return, you must print and mail your Form 1040X. You need to do this even if you e-filed the original return. Remember to include copies of any schedules that have changed and any forms you didn’t include in your original return.
