However, you should file an amended return if any of the following were reported incorrectly:
Your filing status
Your total income
Your deductions or credits
If the changes involve other schedules or forms, attach them to the Form 1040X. For example, if you are filing a 1040X because you have a qualifying child and now want to claim the Earned Income Credit, you must attach a Schedule EIC to show the qualifying person’s name, year of birth and Social Security number.
