No mortgage. no 1098. How do I move past box 3 on questions?

Do I still need to put in a mortgage origination date if I currently have no mortgage?

No, you do not need to enter any information in the mortgage interest section if you have no mortgage or Form 1098.  

 

Use the following steps to enter your property taxes paid instead of entering the property tax with the mortgage information:

  • On the top row of the TurboTax online screen, click on Search (or for CD/downloaded TurboTax locate the search box in the upper right corner)
  • This opens a box where you can type in “property tax” (be sure to enter exactly as shown here) and click the magnifying glass (or for CD/downloaded TurboTax, click Find)
  • The search results will give you an option to “Jump to property tax
  • Click on the blue “Jump to property tax” link and enter your information

The mortgage questions are still a problem in TurboTax Premier 2020 Online. TT kept insisting I fill out information about a mortgage, even though my home has been paid off for years. (It knew I had no mortgage last year so congratulated me on my "new home.") Finally, I entered the lender as "No mortgage," entered 0 in all the fields where it insisted on an amount, and entered a mortgage start date of 01/01/1900. Finally, the Review button went away. There should be a way to state that I have no mortgage.

If you are getting requests for a form that you do not have it is probably because it carried over from last year.

 

There are two ways to clear entries from your return.

The first thing to try is to go into the section that has the form  (Less Common Income)

  1. Select the entry that you want to clear. 
  2. On the right hand side there is a trash can. 
  3. Select the trash can and confirm you want to delete that entry.

 To Delete a form:

  1. On the menu bar on the left that shows.
    1. My Info
    2. Federal
    3. State
    4. Review
    5. File
  2. Select Tax Tools
  3. On the drop down select Tools
  4. On the Pop-Up menu select Delete a Form
  5. This will give you all of the forms in your return
  6. Scroll down to the form you want to delete
  7. Select the Form
  8. Click on Delete.

Always use extreme caution when deleting from your tax return.  There could be unintended consequences.
