How do I amend a 1041, 1065, 1120, or an 1120S return using worksheet view in CCH Axcess™ Tax and CCH® ProSystem fx® Tax?

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 state(s) as applicable).
    • Use the table below to see where to mark the Federal return as amended.
    • Many states are amended based on the Federal input. However, some states may have a separate input, within state level worksheets, to mark the state as amended.
  2. Calculate the return.
  3. Enter changes / overrides to correct the return as needed for amended filing.
  4. Calculate the return.

  • Consolidated returns being amended for a specific tax authority (Federal or State(s)) require that same tax authority to be amended in each separate client return in the return group for electronic filing.
  • 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.
