I filed early with a 1040EZ, but I was missing form

Hello! I filed early with a 1040EZ, but I was missing form 8962. So they sent me a letter saying I need to re-do my 8962 and 1040EZ. I first went through the TurboTax website, but it will not let me amend my return. The phone lines are all busy; and the online TurboTax help keeps re-routing me. Should I wait for TurboTax online to answer back? I was hoping to just amend the back page and re-file. But it won't let me go back and amend anything. Or do I just go through irs.gov and start all over from the beginning? I am willing to file a 1040A instead of a 1040EZ if that will be more acceptable. I went to H&RBlock. They said to contact the IRS if TurboTax cannot help me. So here I am. As I said, the IRS phone lines are all busy. I have until April 26, according to the letter from the IRS. So is it NOT possible to go back into TurboTax and amend a return?

I have another tax question. Being a retired firefighter

I have another tax question. Being a retired firefighter from WV I receive a civil service pension. The state of NC takes their state tax from my pension check. If I was still a resident of WV they would not. Being partially disabled now and turning 67 next month is that going to help me with my NC tax situation?

We have a small farm and rent a portion to groups to hold horse

We have a small farm and rent a portion to groups to hold horse camps. We have a business license and have been reporting income/expenses. Last year we completed a covered arena which attracted several boarders and built barns for them. we didn't use to report the one or two boarders but now it feels more like a business and we intend to report that income. We report as a partnership and fill out a 1065 for the business. I feel we should start depreciating the Arena and barns but not sure how to do that on the business form or whether we should pass the depreciation onto our personal taxes. Help!

If you pay day care expenses $11,000.00 year

If you pay for home day care expenses $11,000.00 for the year for one child. Your adjusted household income for a married couple filing jointly comes to over $45,000.00. The dollar limit is $3,000.00, would you get 20% of the $3,000.00 or do you take $3,000.00 off of the $11,000.00 and therefore you would get back 20% of the $8,000.00 difference?Thank you
