Amending a 2009 Iowa Return to Correct for 2008 Recovery Rebate
Some TurboTax customers who filed 2009 Iowa state tax returns will need to amend those returns to correct a calculation error that affected state taxable income.
Here's how to know if your tax return is affected. Check to see if you:
- Used TurboTax in 2008 and transferred your tax files to a 2009 TurboTax product.
- Received a 2008 Federal Recovery Rebate Credit on your 2008 federal tax return. You will know if you got a Recovery Rebate Credit if your tax return shows a number greater than zero on line 70 of Form 1040, or line 42 of Form 1040A, or line 9 of Form 1040EZ.
If both of these apply to you, your Iowa taxable income could be either underreported or over reported.
