Hello TDO. Welcome to The Community.

I don't think you have to worry. Once a return is efiled and accepted by the IRS, a second return cannot be filed under same name, Social Security number, etc. Submitting such a return would result in rejection by the IRS since there is already a return filed.

I hope this helps. Good luck to you.

As WillMc1 mentioned in his post. Once one of your returns is accepted by the IRS, the other will be rejected.

Once submitted, there is no way to cancel an e-file submission. Usually in this situation, one return will be accepted and the other will be rejected. It is possible that both returns will be rejected depending on how they are treated on the IRS servers. You will receive an e-mail as soon as the status of the returns are updated. If the accepted return is incorrect, you may want to amend your return to correct any errors. If they are rejected, you should be able to correct any errors and re-file.
