Question:  If I make a change to a return that was marked Complete prior to submitting the return, does the software include the change in the e-file?

Answer:  Yes

Question:  My return was marked complete in error, how can I ensure it does not show up to transmit?

Answer:  If you have a security template that enables the ability to mark a return for review, the preparer can mark the return Ready for Review on the Submission page in e-file.  This will change the status to Review Pending and the return will not be available in Transmission.
