I accidentily put in foreign income. How can I remove it?

@sheilarobe , income , foreign or domestic all must be reported.  So I don't understand what you mean by trying to remove foreign income --- is it an income or not .  If what you are trying to do is exclude foreign earned income then you still have to report it and  use form 2555 to exclude the income from US taxation.

 

Please can you give more details on what you are trying to do ?

It was not earned foreign income.  I got confused because I was a contractor.  The income was NOT foreign.  I need to remove the foreign income form. 

 

Thank you!

This is what is located on the left.  It does not say tax tools. Am I in the wrong area?

@sheilarobe You are accessing your Intuit Account.  That is not the online tax return.

 

To access your online tax returns sign onto the TurboTax website with the User ID you used to create the account - https://myturbotax.intuit.com/

Not helping.  All ways I sign in take me to my current tax return.  There is no information about tools or removing a form.  

Any information would be appreciated.

When you sign onto your TurboTax account do you land on a screen that says - Hi (Your Name), let's keep working on your taxes!

Or do you land on a screen that says - Way to go, (Your Name)! You filed your 2021 taxes.

@sheilarobe , I am so sorry that you are having trouble removing the unrequired form -- but you are in good hands  as  both @DoninGA  and @FangxiaL  are very  well versed in this area  ( much more so than I ).  

However, I just want to make sure that your income really was not foreign for US tax purposes.  Please can you elaborate -- you said you were a contractor -- where was the work done ?  In the USA ( in which case it is domestic earning  , even if the payor is a foreign entity ) or abroad ( in which it would be foreign even even the payor is US based ).   I know  , you knwo what you are doing , but I want to be sure that we are helping you correctly and not opening you for some other issue downstream.  Please excuse my persistence on the this.

 

regards,
