Hi and welcome to our site!You would NOT be able to file your tax return twice...After the IRS accept and process your tax return - the IRS system will reject any subsequent filing.If you want to make changed to the tax return which was already filed - you woudl need to file an amended tax return - using form 1040X and main that tax return to the IRS.Let me know if you need any help with that.
