One seemingly simple question that I just cannot find an answer to: What amounts do you put in column A?
The numbers from the first-listed spouse's return, as preiously adjusted if applicable. The spouse's numbers and any other adjustments go in B.
I assume you use software to do this. The most important thing is to start by reading your software's instructions several times. The IRS revamped the form a couple of years ago, and the whole approach in software changed with it. I'm finally getting the hang of amended returns in general, but it's been a struggle.
You might also want to take a look at the IRS form and instructions, both of which have been recently revised.
