Hi, my name is Mark. I will be happy to help you with your questions. Yes, you can amend your return to remove your step son as a dependent. This will reduce the amount of refund that you would receive.
Yes, turbo tax has an amended return option. The form that you would need to file is a 1040X. You would start with the information from your original return, then make the changes to the dependents. Finally, you would provide an explanation of the changes. You would need to paper file the return (you cannot efile). You would need to include your original form 1040 (write as originally filed at the top of the return). You would need to include the amended return (Form 1040 and write as amended on each page). Finally you would need to include form 1040X. You would also need to amend your state return.

Hi, I tried to initiate a phone call and the call did not go through as a result of payment failure. Sometimes the credit card company will deny a second charge thinking that it may be a fraudulent transaction.
