Are you filing joint and your spouse has a W-2 and you accidentally entered both W-2's for the same spouse?
Or perhaps there is a rounding error - try reducing the amount by $1.00.
Is it in box 14 on your W-2? How much did you enter?
It cannot be more than $1,229.
Actually unless you are itemizing deductions, it is not necessary to enter it at all. The only reason for it to be entered is it is a state tax that can be a deduction but only if you itemize.
so sdi is only 280ish. so turbo tax brought it to my attention on review so I added a zero, now ive removed the zero and everything is fine. Go figure , Thanks to all that replied. allowed some other ideas to crop up in my head based on your suggestions and have now filed my taxes. Thank you all
I also have only 1 employer.
I also had excess, but TurboTax wouldn't let me file.
The fine/bolded print at the bottom of the Excess SDI Worksheet says:
- 1 employer
- you were taxed more than 1% of gross
- Then you CANNOT claim excess but need to contact your employer for a refund.
Thus, I blanked Form 540 Line 74 (no zero, but blank) and the error went away and I was able to file.
