I need to amend my 2009 taxes to claim the first time home buyer tax credit.?

March 14th, 2011

Question by Patrick: I need to amend my 2009 taxes to claim the first time home buyer tax credit.?
Can I send in my Form 1040ez (filled with HR Block Software), Form 1040x, Form 5405, and my HUD-1? I read somewhere that you cannot claim the FTHB credit with a 1040ez but I didn’t know if that was referring only to an initial refund and not an amended refund.

Thank you.

Best answer:

Answer by tro
1040 X and it will be manual since you need to send background documents with it
if you already filed a 1040EZ you don’t need to send another one, do not, ever send a return you already filed, the only way is by 1040X

    To claim the FTHB tax credit you must file Form 1040X Amended tax return, and attach form 5405; don’t forget to review your Form 1040X before mailing to IRS, make sure to use your current address, sign all forms and date. Anything missing IRS will have to send you a letter requesting additional information and will delay the refund by another 6-8 weeks, actual processing of form 1040X is 14-16 weeks from date IRS receives the forms, and refunds for FTHB are only sent by mail.
    good luck.
