As it turns out it was Turbo Taxes fault.  Used the wrong form. The correct form won’t be available until January 31.

Please click on California State Forms Availability periodically to check if your form is ready. TurboTax brings in the forms as fast as they become available wherever possible. Once the form is ready, when you open your program, it will have automatically updated. By re-running the Review, you will know if the form is updated.

 

Otherwise, this is how to reach out to TurboTax.

I have been trying to file my California taxes and it keeps getting rejected because of a negative value on the 540 schedule D. What do I have to do to fix this?

Schedule CA: the errors are: Fed alimony paid must be entered, Ln5-Fed SS benefits amt must be entered, Alimony SSN, Alimony last name but I don't have alimony. How to fix those errors?

Please try using a different browser @thyha - not internet explorer, it is causing trouble.

Can you please be more specific with what you are seeing for your schedule D?

I have the same issue very frustrated. Can not get rid of errors. Turbo Tax need to find a resolution. Same issue last year. Had to file state hard copies because of same error.
