latest Form IL-1040-X?

a copy of the notiﬁ cation you received from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) stating that they accepted the changes
shown on your U.S. Form 1040X; e.g., a refund check, "Statement of Account," agreement, or judgment. You must write
the date the IRS notiﬁ ed you (not the date you ﬁ led your U.S. 1040X) in the appropriate space in Step 1, Line E. Failure
