We cannot see your return or screen, so we do not know which box you are referring to.

However, it can happen that because of the dynamic nature of the screen order in the HSA interview, that you may find it difficult or impossible to get back to the original screen that you want.

In this case, the most straightforward thing to do is to delete your HSA information from your return and start the HSA over again. To do this, please read the following:

The safest - although brute force - way to fix this is to do the following in this order:

1. make a copy of your W-2(s) (if you don't have the paper copies)

2. delete your W-2(s) (use the garbage can icon next to the W-2(s) on the Income screen

*** Desktop***

3. go to View (at the top), choose Forms, and select the desired form. Note the Delete Form button at the bottom of the screen.

*** Online ***

3. go to Tax Tools (on the left), and navigate to Tools->Delete a form

4. delete form(s) 1099-SA (if one), 8889-T, and 8889-S (if one)

5. go back and re-add your W-2(s), preferably adding them manually

6. go back and redo the entire HSA interview.
