Sometimes it's embarrassing when you're asked a question and you don't have the answer...

My brother filed his return last month and recently received K-1s from several partnerships, including some he sold. It would be simpler if he could just file a "fresh" return as if the first return hadn't been filed. Somewhere in the recesses of my fading memory I recall that this might be acceptable since it's still before the filing deadline.

If not, he'll have to file an amended return, which will not be a trivial exercise considering the types of information on the K-1s and sales schedules.

So... can he just file another "new" return with a later filing date than the original return or will this create problems?
