So, I got the forms ready for signature and proceeded to drop it in the mail since the envelope was stamped and addressed. Minor detail -- I meant to get the kid's signature before mailing.

As soon as I realized what I'd done, I redid the forms and got the signature and again, dropped it into the mail.

Monday's mail, however, brought a request from the IRS for the form to be signed, as well as phone number and all.

What can I say? The form is (already) in the mail.


If the request instructed you to mail the signed 1040X back to a specific addressee (other than the general address you filed it at), call the number and tell them what happened. That should take care of everything.

If the instructions were just to sign the 1040X and return to the same generic IRS mailing address you originally mailed it to, then do nothing more.
