Trying to finish taxes. System is asking me to check an entry. What state is my employer in? I get ss only. I am retired. No employer. How do I get out of this?

Did you enter your SS under the spot for W2 wages?  If you only get SS you do not have to file a return except to get back any withholding taken out.  SS is not taxable unless you have other income.  And you can not efile a return with zero taxable income.  

 

Or you have a W2 that transferred over from last year?  Try to delete any W2s.

 

You can try to clear and start over,

Enter a SSA-1099, SSA-1099-SM or RRB-1099 under
Federal
Wages and Income tab
Then scroll down to Retirement Plans and Social Security
Social Security (SSA-1099. RRB-1099) - click the Start or Update button

 

If you ONLY get SSI or Social Security or Social Security Disability or a SSA-1099 or RRB-1099 for railroad retirement you do not have to file a return. And there is no benefit to itemizing deductions or claiming dependents.
