How can I elect to defer tax on a gain if I have already filed my tax return?

    If your investment was made within the 180-day period allowed for your particular gain, your tax return could be amended to reflect the appropriate deferral.

    File an amended return.

    This will depend in part on the timing of the original gain.

    You would have to amend your return. Check with your accountant on the logistics and timing of that amendment.

    I am not sure. I would think you could file an amended return, provided that you still can satisfy the timing requirements for a QOF investment. However, I would need to further review the issue.

    I believe that you can amend your tax return to elect to defer the gain. Has your window for the 180-day period for QOF investment already passed?
