My brother filed his taxes electronically.

He was told after the fact, he can claim the theft of his Ipod and music (value around $1000)

Can he amend his return for this? How does it work?

I'd be careful, it sounds sketchy.  How do you prove that? I mean, I could have "lost" an Ipod too, how would they know?

Really?
I hadn't either, but i looked it up, it's legit.

He filed a police report and everything, so he has "proof"

My husband is a CPA, I asked him and he laughed. So I guess not.

He filed a police report, so he would have proof if audited

Yes he can, im not sure of the form but you can file an ammended return. He needs to have a police report thoug he can't just claim it.
