If you make mistakes while filing your Form 2290, you can file amendments or new returns and get an updated Schedule 1, even though you cannot make changes to your original Schedule 1. 

You must file a new Form 2290 return if you make any mistakes in the First Used Month (FUM), tax year, Employer Identification Number (EIN), or business name in your original return. Click here to know more.

You can also file amendments in certain instances to make changes to your return.

The IRS accepts amendments only in the following cases
