To me that's easier than creating a bad return and fixing it, but to each his own.

Ah - I didn't know you could do it your way. That's why you're the Master and I'm the Grasshopper.

But your point about using year X software to fix a year X return is well taken. Maybe the software is smart enough to have previous year's numbers built in (amounts for standard deduction, exemptions, various phase-out thresholds, and tax tables!) - but you sure would be well advised to check closely.
