I didn't file for disaster and turbo tax doesn't allow me to complete my filing telling me that I have filed for a disaster. How can I fix this?

Are you seeing references to IRS form 8915-F in your tax return and you want to remove the form?

 

In TurboTax Online, you may remove the form by:

 

  • Down the left side of the screen, click on Tax Tools.
  • Click on Tools.
  • Click on Delete a form.
  • Find the form listed and click Delete to the right.

However, if the form re-generates, that means that there is an entry in the software that needs to be removed or changed.

 

If this is the case, return back to the point in the software where the questions that populate the form are asked.

 

Please try the following steps if you are using TurboTax Online to see if the error message will clear:

 

  • Go to Federal on the left side of the screen.
  • Go to Wages & Income on the left side of the screen.
  • Click Edit / Add to the right of IRA, 401(K), Pension Plan Withdrawals.
  • At the screen Here's your 1099-R info, click Continue.
  • Continue to the screen Did You take a 2020 Qualified Disaster Distribution.
  • Remove all entries.  Unclick If this was a Coronavirus-related distribution reported in 2020.
  • Click No You didn't have a 2020 Qualified Disaster Distribution.  Click Continue.
  • Continue to the end of income.  Scroll down and click Done with Income.
  • Run the Federal Review again to see if the error has cleared.
