I am getting the exact same error. Please let us know if this issue was resolved of if there is a target time for resolution. Just concerned as the tax deadline for extension is Oct 15 (in two weeks) and I see this issue reported on Sep 20 in the original thread and is still unresolved even after 10 days. Thanks

Just to close this thread.  This was a error with the online version of turbo tax appearing for some specific tax situations that I unfortunately fell into.  Looks like this doesn't happen to everyone but based on specific tax situations based on your answers on the onlien site. Trying to find out what caused this only resulted in numerous hours of frustration and unsuccessful attempts. Have to call out that the customer service associates were very patient though and tried to help though we did not get to a resolution

 

Finally thanks to @GabiU , I was told that the PC/Mac installable version of Turbotax solves this and shared the Mac downloadable through my intuit account along with instructions on how to import all the details you meticulously filled in to the online tool (without having to do it from scratch on the local installed version). Though I was skeptical, I was able to export from web, import everything easily into my local turbotax software on Mac and it actually did solve the issue and I was able to e-file. Thought of sharing in case anyone runs into this issue in future

You have to use the CD/Download (installed) version of TurboTax.

I've already paid for turbotax self-employed. Does this mean I need to pay for the downloadable version now?

No. Use the link Critter-3 provided; you should be able to get a refund (or credit) for the online version.

Hello anyone - guess what? customer is available the weekend!! Reached a lovey, extremely, patient, and helpful, problem solver Vidya within a minute of calling [phone number removed]. I saw where someone else mentioned about the GLITCH! with my version of Turbo Tax causing this error. VIdya sent me an updated version which I downloaded as she walked me thru the process and viola!! SUCCESS!  now I'll be ready to watch some baseball tom'r!! Good luck!
