How to File a Mississippi Tax Amendment

Mississippi
"The Magnolia State"

If you need to change or amend an accepted Mississippi State Income Tax Return for the current or previous Tax Year, you need to complete Form 80-105 (residents) or Form 80-205 (nonresidents and part-year residents). Forms 80-105 and 80-205 are Forms used for the Tax Amendment. You can prepare a 2018 Mississippi 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 Mississippi Tax Agency, thus you should file a Mississippi Amendment within one year.
