If you forgot to include some income or to take a deduction on your tax return – you can correct it by amending your tax return.
In some cases, you do not need to amend your tax return. The Internal Revenue Service usually corrects math errors or requests missing forms – such as W-2s or schedules – when processing an original return. Should this happen you need not amend your return.
However, you should file an amended return if any of the following were reported incorrectly:
Your filing status
Your total income
Your deductions or credits
