issue trying to efile indiana state taxes

When checking state taxes I get "we found 1 area on your return where we will need to review your entries.  When I click check entries, I get the message: We won't be able to E-file your return. Why? Well, it looks like you have a tax situation in the Indiana return that makes it ineligible for e-filing.  Reason for e-file ineligibility:  "At least two of the three withholding amounts (Federal Income Tax Withholding, State Income Tax Withholding, and Local Income Tax Withholding) on 1099-R statement have same dollar amount. Turbo Tax does not support this information to be filed electronically.  The good news is you can still print your Indiana returns and file it by mail.  I have called them twice & they see no reason I shouldn't  be able to file via e-filing.  These 1099-R's have been basically the same for years & have never had a problem.  Have spent several hours trying to get this worked out. Even deleted taxes and reentered still won't let me e-file.  Any quick answers would be appreciated.

Are you using cents or whole dollars? Try changing to whole dollars. Sometimes that will work.

Thanks for the response.  I have tried both ways several times.  Thanks thow.  I  really think Turbo tax technicians needs to make a fix to there internal program rules.  This makes no sense to me at this point.

Unfortunately it is not a TurboTax internal program rule. It is an IRS e-file fraud filter.

Thank you so much for your response and information.  If your correct on that, then I understand why Indiana State taxes can't be E-file on Turbo Tax.  My only question would be, why would Turbo Tax allow me to E-file my Federal using the same 1099R's, but then not allow those same 1099R's to not go through on the Indiana State side.  Basically there are two 1099's one small Pension & one small IRA, that I do not pay Federal or State taxes on during the year and just pay full tax on the income once at the end of the year during tax reporting.  Thus the 1099's show 0.00 in both the Federal, State & Local tax withhold areas on both 1099 forms.

Since I have E filed my federal return with no problem, the system will not let me change one of the dollar amounts to a whole number, so you recommended solution did not work.  I have never had this problem in past using Turbo tax, but it does leave questionable future use.  I still don’t believe it is an IRS filter system and would be interested if others have experience this same situation.    Hope turbo tax can find the problem and fix it.  Thanks for your time.

Since this is  state return, the boxes don't need entries, they can be blank in the state and local section. Remove the zeroes in those boxes and let them be blank. If it is a full year resident state, you don't need to enter anything in the state and local sections as those are automatically pulled in for taxation.
