If you filed your original return electronically using a software product, we recommend attempting to file your amended return using that same product. Most software vendors have updated their products to account for the unemployment exclusion. E-filing your amended return will ensure greater accuracy and faster processing times.
If you paper file your amended return, here are some helpful reminders:
- Use the MI-1040 and check the amended box.
- Include schedule AMD which captures the reason why you are amending the return. To complete properly, check Box N and on line 8 "Explanation of changes", please write "Federal Unemployment Exclusion".
- Include all forms and schedules previously filed with your original return.
