Sstem is saying I have a schedule 3, when I do not. I have done the preview screen under tax tools, and there is a zero in box 12, and nothing that even says schedule 3?

My guess is that the system is telling you that you need Schedule 3 for something you entered, but it has not yet created Schedule 3 in your tax return because you are using Free Edition, which cannot produce Schedule 3. I assume it is telling you that you have to upgrade to a higher edition (which is not free) because you need Schedule 3. After you upgrade the amounts from Schedule 3 will flow to Form 1040.


I don't understand what "box 12" you are looking at. Do you mean box 12 on your W-2? Line 12 on Form 1040 has nothing to do with Schedule 3. The totals from Schedule 3 appear on Form 1040 lines 13b and 18d.

You might want to see if you qualify to use the IRS Free File Program delivered by TurboTax. It can produce a tax return with Schedule 3 for free if you meet the qualifications. IRS Free File Program delivered by TurboTax is at the following link, and the qualifications are listed there.

Sorry, I posted the wrong link for IRS Free File Program delivered by TurboTax. I corrected it in my reply above. Here is the correct link again.
