#1;If you discover an error after your return has been filed, you may need to amend your return. your return was filed and accepted; you would need to amend your return to add the 1099-G information on oyour return. The reason your refund is delayed is because the IRS is experiencing tax refund processing delays which has affected allot of people. You will have to wait to amend your return since the amended form will not be available until around 2/9/2014;The IRS isn't accepting amended tax returns until February 9, 2014. So amende and re-print your tax return on the 9th and mail it in once the form is available you can go through the amendment interview to add your 1099-G form. Amended returns must be mailed, they cannot be efiled. Your state tax liability may be affected by a change made on your federal return. For information on how to correct your state tax return, you need to contact your state tax agency.i mean if it affects your state return, you also need to file your state amended return. Generally, to claim a refund, Form 1040X must be filed within 3 years after the due date of your original return or if you filed your return under an extension of time to file, 3 years after the date you filed your return or within 2 years after the date you paid the tax, whichever is later. Returns filed before the due date without regard to extensions are considered filed on the due date.
