Error Message: Form 1040-X Cannot Be Electronically Filed

Prior to TaxYear 2019 IRS didn't accept electronic submissions of Form 1040-X.


In verifying a return, the following error message appears: 

’Form 1040-X cannot be electronically filed’


This behavior occurs when the program finds Form 8879 and Form 1040-X in a tax return.  


This verification error can be ignored. For an amended return, the only forms necessary to print are the 1040-X and any form that has changed; printing the complete return will print unnecessary forms. The individual forms can be printed with print current form. If desired, the entire return can be printed through print return components or by deleting Form 8879.
