How to File an Amended Hawaii Return


amend Hawaii taxes
Hawaii
"The Aloha State"

If you need to change or amend an accepted Hawaii State Income Tax Return for the current or previous Tax Year, you need to complete Form N-11 (residents), Form N-15 (nonresidents and part-year residents) and Schedule AMD Forms N-11 and N-15 are Forms used for the Tax Amendment. You can prepare a 2018 Hawaii Tax Amendment on eFile.com, however you cannot submit it electronically. In comparison, the IRS requires a different Form - Form 1040X - to amend an IRS return (do not use Form 1040 for an IRS Amendment). 

The IRS might send you a notification to change an error on your Return, or you might have discovered an error. If you or the IRS amended or changed one of your IRS Tax Return(s), the IRS will report this to the Hawaii Tax Agency, thus you should file a Hawaii Amendment within one year.
