The retirement savings contribution is automatically generated based on entries from your W-2. If you contributed to a 401K (or similar retirement savings) with your employer, you may have had amounts entered in box 12 (codes D-H) on your W-2. You will need to visit the section of TurboTax that address the credit for it to correctly calculate.
