      Hopefully, this is a really simple . I have a couple of clients that filed as non filers to get the Stimulus payment.
      Then when I went to E-file their returns they were rejected.

      1. Do you know when the 1040X for 2019 will be released?
      2. Or should a paper amended returns have to be mailed in?
      3. If so, by July 15?

      Thank you

      The IRS says the 1040X efile will be available “this summer” but no news on definition of “summer”:) So yes the return must be mailed. They should mail by 7/15 to avoid penalties if there is a balance due.

      Do not use 1040X.  The IRS stated in a press release

      <span style=”font-family: times new roman,times; font-size: medium;”>Duplicate returns related to Economic Impact Payment (EIP): If a filer used the Non-Filers tool to register for EIP, they cannot file a subsequent tax return electronically.  They must complete a paper Tax Year 2019 Form(s) 1040/1040-SR, print and write “Amended EIP Return” at the top, and mail the return to the IRS.  The tax return must be mailed by the postponed due date of July 15, 2020 to avoid late-filing penalties and late fees.</span>
