Mistakes on federal tax returns are common and can be fixed. How? Amend your tax return and file it right. Tax Form 1040x is the form to use for amending your tax return. But wait, it can’t be e-filed. How do you file an amended return? Filing status, income, deduction or credits that are wrong on your tax return can be fixed with an Amended return. There is even a special WMR, dubbed the WMAR to check the status of your Amended tax return.

Amended Returns – multiple years
I filed amendment to the returns for year 2013, 2012, and 2011. Sent all the documents on the same day and I see on WMAR website that they are showing status for 2013 and 2012 returns – received 3/10 and adjusted 4/10. Based on other posts, it seems I should see the adjustment in couple of weeks by mail. However, I don’t see any information for 2011. Before sending the returns, I made sure that the submission date was within the 3 year window from the date I filed the 2011 returns. Anyone has any idea what’s going on? Is it just delay in processing at IRS or delay in updating WMAR? Any help and thoughts will be appreciated.
