This is more like it. I suspect the 2009 1040X required more information from the original than the computer would show the person trying to process the claim.

I think someone gets a promotion every time a form is changed.

My dad used to tell me war stories about how one Colonel would come into a post and order an organization to move across the post in order to "increase efficiency." He would leave as a general because of his improvements to the post. Six months later a new commander would move the organization back to where it was originally, for the same reasons. Once again, he gets a promotion.

Nothing new under the sun.

My 2009 version of LaCerte does not have the latest 1040X form (revised Dec 2010, which is back like the old one - thank goodness). Will the IRS accept the 1040X for 2009 on that "revised Jan 2010" version instead of the "revised Dec 2010" version?

More yellow box searching seems to indicate that people think the IRS will accept old forms. But most of that discussion centered around the new one dated Jan 2010, not the version dated Dec 2010 which is actually a return to the old way. So looks like now year 2009 is the only year my software is out-of-step, instead of the other way around. But if they took versions other than the "latest & greatest" before, hopefully they will do so again. If anyone has encountered something different, hopefully you can let me know before we get this one mailed.

Joan, have you clicked the Download Updates? Maybe Lacerte issued an update with the new form.

Yes, I checked for updates. No change from Jan 2010 version. Do you think the IRS will accept the 1040X on this version? Or will I have to do some manual input to get my info on the Dec 2010 version of 1040X via either the 2010 LaCerte, or from irs.gov?

Someone asked a similar question a few weeks ago. In the past I had always manually transfered the numbers to the latest 1040X. However, the consensus from the other members of this board was that you did not have to use the latest form. They had submitted amended returns with prior-year 1040X forms without any problems from the IRS.
