I can't file my taxes because it says I have a foreign account. Where can I fix this?

After the Wages & Income section you will be taken through a series of questions.  You can change your answer there if it was mistakenly marked 'Yes'.

 

In this situation, please first try clearing the cookies and cache.   It handles many issues that seem nonsensical on a regular basis. 

  • Close your TurboTax return first.

Watch to be sure you are selecting 'all time' as example.  Do not use selections like 'last hour' for those browsers that give  you options.

Once this is complete open your return and follow the steps below.

 

  1. Sign into your tax return > Select Wages & Income from the menu panel (left) > Review any interest or dividend entries > 
  2. When you are back to the income page scroll to the bottom and click Continue
  3. Keep clicking Continue until you reach the page 'Did either of you own or control a foreign bank account, trust or financial asset in 2023?'
  4. Make sure the answer is 'No' if you have no foreign accounts.
