Download IRS Form 1120-X Amended U.S. Corporation Income Tax Return
What to Include with the 1120X?
If the corrected amounts on IRS 1120X Form must be supported with a schedule, statement, or a form, the corporation must attach these documents as required. The corporation's name and employer identification number (EIN) must be included in every attachment. In addition, Form 8302, Electronic Deposit of Tax Refund of $1 Million or More, must be attached if the corporation is requesting an electronic refund of over a $1 million.
In case the amendment is made for a tax year when the corporation conducted a "reportable transaction" Form 8886, Reportable Transaction Disclosure Statement must be attached.
If Form 1120X is filed as a carryback claim, the corporation is required to attach copies of the first page of Form 1120, as well as the tax computation page, for both the tax year when the loss or credit occurred and for the carryback year. The copies should include a note stating "Copy Only-Do Not Process."
