Form 1040X Attachments

Post by ontn » Sun Feb 28, 2010 5:57 pm

Moved to the US in May on TN Status.

Already Filed Form 1040 with no FEI stated.

Since learned I earned a small amount of Canadian Income in early 2009.

I will file 1040X with a 2555 that eliminates the full amount.

Question: should I also attach all other forms/schedules and/or an amended Form 1040?

NOTE 1: FEIE appears to completely cancel the FEI, so the AGI (Line 37) is unchanged vs Original 1040 Filing

NOTE 2: Nelson, please note the 2009 Form 1040X is different than in years past.

FEIE only applies to wages. Other questions are purely mechanical.

It's more than mechanical to me...

As Form 1040X has been redesigned vs prior years, I cannot find relevant advise elsewhere.
