If you are certain that Form 3514 does not belong on your return, you can delete it.

 

You should be signed in and working in TurboTax:

  •  In the left-hand black menu, choose Tools.
  •  Click on Delete a Form from the window that pops up.
  •  You should now see the Review Form List. Scroll down the list and click Delete on Form 3514.
  • You may get a pop up telling you additional worksheets and forms are being deleted. Approve and click delete.
  • You should come back to the Review Form List. Scroll to the bottom and click Continue with My Return.

I do not see a Tools box in the left-hand menu.  Can you be more specific

Which version of TurboTax are you using?

I have the same issue.... and I do not see the form 3514 on the list of forms when I go to try to delete it.

The Form 3514 is California Earned Income Tax Credit- it will be under the state forms.  California has some differences from the federal Earned Income Credit, so if you qualify you may have to answer additional questions.  See 2019 Instructions for Form FTB 3514.

First, are you a California resident? 

 

Second, how you delete forms varies according to whether you are using the Online product or the CD/download version of the software.

 

Please see the following:

 

 

*** Desktop***

1. go to View (at the top), choose Forms, and select the desired form. Note the Delete Form button at the bottom of the screen.

 

*** Online ***

1. go to Tax Tools (on the left), and navigate to Tools->Delete a form

 

2. delete form(s) 3514 down at the bottom of the list where the California forms are.

 

3. continue with your return.

 

Please let us know if this helps...

I am using the desktop version and even after deleting form 3514, it doesn't stay deleted when I go to review it. After going to the forms tab I select form 3514 (which has an exclamation point next to it), click 'delete form' then I click yes I am sure. Then I saved and went back to the review and the form is incomplete again. Is there something I am doing wrong?

This sounds like you have something in your California input that is triggering the form.

 

Please open your return in TurboTax and navigate to the California interview. Proceed to the screen headed by "Take a look at California credits and taxes". Scroll down to "California Earned Income Credit under Personal, Home and family credits.

 

Click on Update (I assume that you have already been in this section), and delete or zero out any entries you made here...then go delete form 3514, and see if it stays deleted.

I have the same issue. I tried going back and looking at the California earned income credit and there was no option to zero it out. There is also no form 3514 to delete. Please help.

I am having the same issue. I am not able to find From 3514 to delete.

I tried your steps. When I clicked California Earned Income tax credit - update, it does not open the form. This is what it says: 

 

It looks like you don't qualify for the California Earned Income Tax Credit

 

When I review the CA return - it is asking for a business code from the federal return. Where do I get the business code?

 

Thanks.
