Amended 2017 partnership tax return letter doesn't recognize the return is being e-filed.

Client prepared and filed their original 2017 partnership tax return.

I prepared the amended return and indicated in section G that it was an amended return. I also checked the "Amended" box in the e-file section of the Partnership Information worksheet.

The return is shown in the EF Center as "Amended Return Marked for E-file". However, the client letter tells the client to sign, date and mail the return.

What else do I need to do for the letter to recognize the return will be e-filed?

Is it safe to assume the return is set up properly for e-filing since the EF Center shows that it is marked for e-file?

Thanks for you help.

People come to Accountants Community for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
