1040X Amended Income Tax Return
Printable Tax Form And Instructions 2016, 2015, 2014

Form 1040X is used to correct IRS Form 1040EZ, Form 1040A, and Form 1040. To obtain a credit or refund based upon your correction, Form 1040X generally must be filed within three years of the return due date, April 15 for example. See the Form 1040X instructions booklet for exceptions to this rule and more details on when and where to file.

Examples of when to use Form 1040X:

  • Missed a credit or deduction which reduces your tax due.
  • Found a shoe box full of receipts after you filed your return.
  • Correct an error on Form 1040, Form 1040A, or Form 1040EZ.
  • Change return amounts which were adjusted by the IRS.
  • Claim a carry back due to a loss or unused credit.

Form 1040X and the 1040X instructions booklet are generally updated in December of each year (if updated the current year will display, prior year if not).
