How do I correct the mistakes in my 2006 tax return filed in the last year?

While preparing 2007 taxes, I discovered that my 2006 returns had mistakes and I lost about $600 refund. Is there any way to resubmit 2006 taxes and get the refund?

    Yes. File a Form 1040X (amended tax return) for 2006 and report the correct amounts.

    You'll file an amended return on a form 1040X for 2006, and show the original and the corrected numbers. Send along documentation of the changes.

    File an amended return with the office that prepared your 2006 return. You may be charged a fee and you'll have to mail it in because prior year returns can't be electronically filed.

    Yes, it's called filing an amended return. If you filed your taxes using Turbo Tax or some similar program, you can find an option for help with filing an amended return.
