Dh and decided to go back to school this year. We thought since we started our school in January we wouldn't have to worry about our school sending us money. So we filed our taxes today our school sends us a form that has says we were students in 2012. So we have to amend our return and I'm freaking out. I don't know what expect. Has anyone ever had to do a amended return? If so how did it turn our?

Did you receive the money in 2012? If not, your return shouldn't change that much, if at all.

Meh. We've had to do it before. It wasn't that hard to do.

I just got my check today. The school did credits for my classes and did a book credi. I thought nothing of this. I'm so scared they are going penalize me to death. I can't declare student since I didn't become one till this year 2013.

Did they penalize you a lot? I'm so scared of the IRS.

It depends on the mistake. It doesn't sound like you guys made a big one, so I wouldn't worry about it.

stop freaking out it won't be that big of a deal.  you just fill out an amended form.  taxes aren't even due until april 13.  if you've already done your 2012 taxes & received a refund, then just do an amended return..  it may or may not change your refund.  it may only change it by a small amount.  they won't penalize you within the same tax year.
