16938: States Generally - Generating and e-Filing Amended Individual Returns

State Returns Generally

How do I generate an amendment for an individual state return? Can it be e-filed?

Listed below are the locations in Data Entry where you can mark a state return as Amended. Federal Form 1040-X can be e-filed, however, only certain state amended returns are eligible for e-filing. The e-filing column is for the current tax year program and may not be applicable to prior years. See state-specific help for more information. Additional states may enable e-filing at a later date or may not be available in prior years of Drake Tax.

*You can generate the amended returns for Portland, Oregon Forms MC40 and MC40NP, MET40 and MET40NP, METBIT-20, METBIT-20S, METBIT-41, or METBIT-65 in Drake Tax, however, they must be paper-filed at this time. Be sure to include a written statement with the reason for the amendment and the dollar amounts changed. This statement can be generated in any word editor and then printed for paper-filing.
