Customer Question
Hello....i filed the wrong...

Hello....i filed the wrong tax status. I did single and then went back to file married/joint when I realized my husband an I would benefit more from filing that way. I keep trying to contact the IRS but can never get a hold of anyone. I'm worried we're going to loose a decent amount of money now.

Accountant's Assistant: The Accountant will know how to help. Is there anything else important you think the Accountant should know?

They already sent the return from when I filed as single

Since you have already filed the tax return, you will have to file an amended return, changing your filing status and combing your husbands information into one return.
