I guess it is a legal/ moral issue; you may contact a tax attorney for accurate professional/legal help for sure. As you can see, As LONG AS you forget to take all the deductions you could have, or you make some mistakes in preparing your tax return, THEN, You should file an amended tax return if you need to correct your filing status, total income, tax deductions, or tax credits.
