Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Hi How can I help?
hi please I filled amend return so how I organize the forms when I send it
I answered this question at 10:05 PM ... and went to bed some time after that ... then 20 minutes later you finally came back and answered my question about how i could .. (the only way I could possibly answer this is to know what te contents of your filing were - which forms, statements, etc) then you came back at 1:48 AM and rate me badly.
I will be opting out now ...
If you'd still like MY help you can ask for me personally, and I'll be glad t help ... but I will need to get additional detail from you to answer your question.
The short answer, is (1) prepare the 1040X (amended return) and (2) attach any of the required schedules, that are (3) required by the instructions for that form.
Here is a link to the form, it's instructions and other forms you may fund useful: http://www.irs.gov/uac/Form-1040X,-Amended-U.S.-Individual-Income-Tax-Return
there is no form 140x ? and where is sequence number that you are talking about ?can clarify for me more please
would I need to send the original return too ?
Hi, Looks like Robin's not on line now,
The answer is NO ... as Iread the instructions themselves, at the end of the instructions, (page 11) they Do NOT ask you to send in the return. I've underlined the applicable section.
Here;s what it says: (again from page 11 of the instructions for Foam 1040x)
Assembling Your Return
including a copy of your original return
If you are sending in the 1040X you are not required to send in a copy of the original, Sorry I missed you yesterday.
it looks weir I send yesterday CPA and she prepared amended return and she asked me to send original one too with 1040x ???
I have problem that I have no w2 or proof of income to attach because my income comes from outside US and when I asked CPA told me that I dont need to attach any document ? is that correct ? just to be sure .
I told her she just answer me by that I dont need substitute w2 because my employer is foreign one , just tell me please , if this is incorrect I will lock for another CPA to fill amend return for me .
just to be sure if I work for foreign employer and he is not issuing w2 form I have to submit 4852 form right ?
Again CPA send me that "You do not need to submit form 4852 because you don't have US income. That is only for US wages, you have foreign earned income."
I am confused , she insists about that , she had 22 years in Tax issues ??
I mean she needs fill this form right ? or as you said is not big deal in my case , because I would not like to be in trouble with IRS you know .
I need just to be sure she something about paystub do I need to have it ?
