2555-T form not working for page 3 or line 27

I am trying to submit my taxes but the 2555-T keeps saying it needs review and for me to correct the lines 26 and 27. However, line 26 is correct and line 27 is on page 3, which i am unable to access on Turbotax for some reason. I cannot e-file with this issue present. So is it better to just delete it and then file it separately? Like with the FBAR on the IRS website? Truthfully, im just trying to declare that I lived abroad and had a foreign bank account not get a special tax break.

Let's try this and see if this works.

 

  1. Open your return in TurboTax 
  2. Click on Wages & Income 
  3. Scroll down to All Income 
  4. Scroll down to Less Common Income
  5. Go to Foreign income and Exclusion.
  6. In the first question that asks if you made money outside the Us, say no.

Now to to tax tools>tools>delete a form>delete 2555-T and all other forms that may reference it.  Next sign out of your return and sign back again and see if this clears the error.

TurboTax needs to know whether you were a bona fide resident of another country or qualified for the foreign earned income exclusion due to the physical presence test.

 

  1. Type foreign income in Search (magnifying glass) in the top right corner
  2. Select Jump to foreign income
  3. On “Did You Make Any Money Outside the United States?” select YES and continue answering questions on the screens
  4. On “Would You Like to Try and Exclude Your Foreign Earned Income?” select YES
  5. On “Were You Living and Working Outside the United States?” answer YES and continue answering questions
  6. On “Choose How to Qualify for this Exclusion” select either the Bona Fide Resident Test or Physical Presence Test
  7. On “Choose Your Qualifying 12 Month Period” enter your dates of residency

I have spent the past two days trying to submit my tax return because I cant get the 2555 form to stop showing up in the Review section when trying to submit my taxes. I have deleted it multiple times and it just keeps popping up and I DONT want this exclusion.
