Welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you.

If you have already filed your tax return, you will have to amend your return to include the correct information.

The amendment form is 1040X. It cannot be efiled so you will have to mail it to the IRS.

Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thank you and best regards,

Barb
