I filed my tax through turbotax and I made an error. Please advise on how to fix


You will need to file an adjustment request.  Please see the following FAQ for instructions on how to submit an adjustment request.

Yes, you can make changes to a filed tax return by filing an adjustment; How you file an adjustment depends on how you filed your original tax return (and if you need to make a change to your federal return or your Québec return, if applicable).


Filing adjustments to a federal tax return

The CRA requires that you wait until you’ve received your notice of assessment (NOA) before filing an adjustment. In many cases, the CRA will catch the mismatch and automatically adjust your return for you. So, it’s best to wait for your NOA as you might not even need to file an adjustment.

If you filed your original tax return using CRA’s NETFILE service:

  1. Sign in to your online TurboTax account or launch your edition of TurboTax CD/download for the tax year you want to prepare an adjustment for.
  2. In Return Manager, select the ReFILE button beside the filed tax return you want to adjust.


If you printed and mailed your original tax return or are in a situation excluded from ReFILE:

  1. See the CRA’s How to change your return page for how to make an adjustment online in your CRA My Account or by mail.


Note: Online editions of TurboTax don’t currently support ReFILE of federal tax returns for residents of Québec.


Filing adjustments to a Québec return

 TurboTax doesn’t currently support Revenu Québec’s electronic Déclaration amendée service.

To make an adjustment to a Québec return see Revenu Quebec’s Changing an income tax return that you have already filed page for instructions on how to make an adjustment online in your Revenu Québec My Account or by mail.

People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
