      Having a bad day. Inadvertently sent the MFJ file electronically when there is a 6k benefit splitting the returns to save on mental health tax. On hold with FTB to see if I can undo. I had the two separate returns prepared ready to go.

      Any ideas?   I feel terrible. Skipped breakfast and lunch and had a low blood sugar…hate being a diabetic.

      Yikes, Gary, I’m so sorry. California conforms to federal law and you cannot amend to go from joint to separate under Reg 1.6013-1(a)(1). However, if you filed an extension for your client you may file a superceding return (on paper) to make the change. So there’s a bit of good news if a federal extension was filed on or before 7/15<sup></sup>
