Did you accurately indicate who earned what ?   If one has self employment does the Sch C have a positive bottom line ? 

 

Review the form 2441 and the worksheets to see if you have it correct.  

 

 

Click on Tax Tools on the left side of the online program screen.  Then click on Print Center.  Then click on Print, save or preview this year's return.  Choose the option Include government and TurboTax worksheets
