Re: Having A Problem With Turbo Tax Online

@cuddlesmama, I had always used TT on-line and never had an issue.  Then a number of years ago, I started my return and had to stop part way through it.  When I logged back in the next day, it was like someone else's information had been imported into my return.

 

I had gains and losses from stocks and bonds, gambling earnings and wages that weren't mine.  I deleted everything out and started to use a different program.

Re: Having A Problem With Turbo Tax Online

@LipstickDiva  Yes, as a fellow Buckeye, you hear what I'm saying about that awful tax form!  Really, the federal was a breeze......I kept thinking I had missed something!  I also hate that I have to fill out an online city RITA filing every year, even though I pay the 2% through my work deductions and the bottom line always comes out to a flat 0.

@2blonde, we don't have RITA in my city.  Our city has their own form we have to use, which is also a little confusing.

 

DH and I both work in the city we live so ours is a wash too but like you, we still have to complete the form and file it every year.  One year I totally forgot about it and had to pay the $25.00 penalty.  Boy was I mad at myself.

Delete the entire items (1099 entry) and then generate a new 1099.

Re: Having A Problem With Turbo Tax Online

The IRS supports a program for free tax preparation called VITA.   The preparers are IRS trained volunteers.
 
My uncle used the services for several years. They electronically filed both his federal/state returns for free.  His tax returns were not simple; involved capital gains/losses, RMDs, investiments.  
 
At the time it was located at his local library.  Please  refer to link below.

I work for a large county in California and they provide this service for their employees under a certain dollar threshold. I made an appointment and had my taxes prepared for free today on my lunch. 

 

I was very pleased with this free service. Last year I paid a tax preparer $220.00.
