You will need to wait until your original return is processed by the IRS to send in an amended return. No matter what software or program you are using the form 1040X is used for this but the IRS will not accept an amendment by e-file.
Make sure you print and save a copy of the original before you select to amend as most programs do not retain the original after you change to amend.
