I tried the form deletion procedures you mentioned, but it did not work. After I confirm deletion of Form 8880, the screen loaded  back to the main forms page. Form 8880 is still not deleted and the saver contribution credit still shows on my credit page.

 

What else can I do to delete Form 8880 from my 1040?

It sounds like there is something on your return that is generating the credit.

 

Please see the link below for additional information on what Form 8880 is and how the credit is generated.

 

Retirement Savings Credit

 

You can make the change in the federal section of the return in either of the following sections.

  1. First you can review your input in the Income & Expenses section of the program.
  2. Select Job (W-2)
  3. Click Edit/Add to the right of the Job (W-2) 
  4. Review your input on the applicable job.  Scroll down to Box 13.  If you have marked Retirement Plan, make sure this box is checked on your W-2 as well.  If it is not, you can uncheck it.  But if the box on your W-2 is checked, leave it as it is reported on your W-2 form.

You can check the credit information in the following section.

  1. Select Deductions & Credits
  2. Scroll down to All tax breaks and select Retirement and Investments
  3. Select Retirement Savings Contribution Credit
  4. Proceed to answer any questions if applicable

TurboTax will take your input and determine if you are eligible or not eligible for the credit accordingly.
