How do I amend a 1041, 1065, 1120, or an 1120S return using worksheet view?

The following video shows how to amend a business return.

Amending a return is a four step process.
  1. Create a second version of the return.
  • Note: After creating a second version of the return, we recommend amending version 1. If version 1 is always your active return, it will be easier to know which return version to roll forward to the next year.
  1. Select the return to be amended (for Federal and states as applicable).
    • 1041 and 1120 returns have an Amended Return worksheet at the state level to mark each state as amended.
    • Use the table below to see where to mark the return as amended.
  2. Enter the overrides or enter changes as needed.
  3. Calculate the return.

  • 1120 Consolidated Corporations are done using either method 1 or method 2 above. These steps must be done in each return in the consolidated group.
  • Amended returns can be amended additional times. To amend a return another time, save the return as a new version, remove any of the amended input from the input listed above, and calculate the return. Create the amended return as if it had not been amended before.
