Tennessee Tax Amendment

amend Tennessee taxes
"The Volunteer State"

If you need to change or amend an accepted Tennessee State Income Tax Return for the previous Tax Year, you must complete Form INC 250. Form INC 250 is used for the Tax Return and Tax Amendment. In comparison, the IRS requires a different Form - Form 1040X -to amend an IRS return (do not use Form 1040 for an IRS Amendment).

Did the IRS send you a notification to change a Federal Tax Return? Or did you discover an error on an IRS or TN tax return? If you or the IRS amend or change one of your IRS Tax Return(s), the IRS will report this to the Tennessee Tax Agency; thus, you should file a Tennessee Tax Amendment within one year.

You can not eFile a TN Tax Amendment anywhere except mail it in.
Only Option: Complete, sign TN Form INC 250 - Print, and Mail the Form to the TN Department of Revenue:
