I filed electronically through a tax preparation service and I received a confirmation number that my RITA return was filed electronically, how can I verify that my return was filed?
Login to MyAccount and go to the File and Pay screen. This screen will provide history and filing status for current and prior year returns. Be sure that the tax year in question has the filing status “Filed (eFile)" or "Filed (paper)". If the filing status states “Begin eFiling" or "Continue eFiling” then the return has not been submitted to RITA. In this case, ask your tax preparer if a confirmation receipt was sent to the tax preparer. The tax preparer should have this notification on hand at the time your return was filed. Your tax preparer may have to resubmit the form or provide a paper copy to file by mail.
I made a mistake on my electronically filed return (MyAccount or FastFile). Can I amend that return electronically?
No. All amended returns must be submitted on a paper form, with all supporting documentation attached.
Yes. Login to MyAccount and select the File a Tax Return option.
