Unable to e-file with excess elective deferrals to qualified plans on my W2/W2G Summary form. Shouldn't this be a warning and not an error? I have accounted for the excess deferral as income so the taxes are correct, but I am still unable to e-file. The TurboTax Home & Business is stuck in a loop telling me that I have over contributed above the $18,500 limit.
Have you resolved this yet? In state of CA, I have no other option but to e-file. TurboTax won't let me do that due to this endless feedback loop. Worried that I'm going to miss the deadline.
The e-file issue you encountered issue within TurboTax has now been fixed.
You may still see a warning about the excess contribution, but you should be able to e-file. You can check out this TurboTax FAQ for more information: Excess 401(k) Contribution Preventing E-filing.
