Delete form 1040/1040SR Wks. 

It does repopulate with an error for that worksheet foreign income and crypto currency - Answer that error and you should be good.

I'm having the same problem with the Worksheet for 1040/1040SR. I decided to try deleting the worksheet and after rerunning smart check and answering the question about making money from cryptocurrencies, TurboTax accepted the forms.

See How to Delete  .Line 11 of the worksheet is your adjusted gross income. The cryptocurrency question is new this year and must be answered.

Line 11 is adjusted gross income, and should have a value. But, the check this entry is signaling that the Self-Employment Tax deferral is not correct. 

 

What has likely happened is that this section may have been visited and then declined, but since it was visited, it is presumed you did want to defer some of the tax. But, since it was later chosen not to defer any self-employment tax, which is allowable, the system needs to update.

 

To get the system to update, try these two trouble shooting steps:

 

First, revisit the section for the Self-employment tax deferral entry and accept it, change it, and then decline it by deferring 0:

  1. Return to the Deductions & Credits section.
  2. Scroll to Tax relief related to COVID-19 and Show More.
  3. Select Self-employment tax deferral and select Revisit.
  4. Answer Yes at the next screen to get back to Let's start by getting your eligible income.
    1. If you do not want to defer any self-employment income, at "Enter your eligible self-employment income", you have three options. Try them in the following order:
      1. Enter nothing--be sure the cell is completely blank
      2. Enter (as in 0 is the portion of self-employment I will defer) or alternatively,
      3. Enter 280/366ths of your income to reflect the income from March 27-December 31, 2021.
    2. Select Continue.
    3. At Tell us how much you'd like to defer
      1. "Enter amount" should be blank if you entered blank above,
      2. Enter 0 if you entered 0 or 280/266ths of income above.
    4. Select Continue.
  5. Scroll down and select Wrap up Tax Breaks and Continue.
  6. I recommend running through the Federal Review again.

Secondly, if the error is still in the return, it is because Sch SE-T or Sch SE-S is not updating properly. To update the return automatically, it is best to close out completely and close the browser, as well. Re-open in Chrome on a PC.

  1. Delete the Sch SE that applies--(Sch SE-T is for Taxpayer, Sch SE-S for Spouse)--by following these steps:
    1. From the left menu, select Tax Tools.
    2. Select Tools.
    3. Scroll to Delete a Form.
    4. Scroll to Sch SE-T and/or Sch SE-S and select Delete.
  2. Return to the self-employment income & expenses interview in the Income & Expenses section and select Edit/Add.
    1. Select Edit for your business.
    2. Scroll down to Done so that the Sch SE is recalculated. 
    3. Finish any other questions in the self-employment interview and click Continue.
  3. Review the return again.
