No, the error isn't because you sold your house. Some TurboTax customers were experiencing an issue with their Home Mortgage Average Balance. This can cause the Home Mortgage Interest to be incorrectly limited.
We have added some in-program help to assist with the entering of your home mortgage information.
For more information, please see the following article:
Since you've got only one 1098, please try to remove the 1098 and start again. Sometimes it really does the trick.
How do I view and delete forms in TurboTax Online?
- Open or continue your return in TurboTax.
- In the left menu, select Tax Tools and then Tools.
- In the pop-up window Tool Center, choose Delete a form.
- Select Delete next to the form/schedule/worksheet in the list and follow the instructions.
Once you've done this, try re-enter the information and see if your error clears. If so, check your 1040 to see if your interest was limited. Go to the tools section on the left and "print" the 1040.
Please let us know if this helps.
