Click on My Info on the left side of the screen.  Make sure that there is not a dependent entered.  If there is, delete the dependent by clicking on the trash can icon.


See if there is a Form 8839, Qualified Adoption Expenses, included with your tax return.  If Form 8839 is listed then delete the form.  Click on Tax Tools on the left side of the screen.  Click on Tools.  Click on Delete a form

You probably answered something incorrectly in My Info.  Go back through your entries in My Info and find the mistake.
