2020 F1040 Printing On 3 Pages Instead Of 2 Pages.

I have the CD version of Turbotax 2020 Deluxe on my Mac. Why is F1040 previewing and printing on 3 pages when the IRS form is only 2 pages long? The other forms seem to be ok.

Turns out all is well. It changed from 1040 to 1040-SR when I entered date of birth. The SR version of the form is large print so takes up 3 pages instead of two. I went into Forms and changed it back to the standard 1040 with no problems after.

How are you printing it?   With the FILE -> Print -> Returns for your Record -> 2020 Federal tax return -> Tax Return only?

 

There should be 3 pages - the first with mailing instructions and a summary and 2 with the 1040.

 

Of you only want the 2 page 1040 the  select FILE -> Print -> Selected forms and only check the 1040 form.
