How can I get rid of the W2 section that I accidentally started to fill out? It won't let me e-file. I don't have a W2

I accidentally started to fill out the W2 section because I got a distribution from my IRA and I thought it was a W2.  When I realized it wasn't right, I continued on.  Now, it won't let me e-file my Federal return and keeps going back to the W2.  I tried following the directions to delete it, but it still won't let me do that.  I may be doing something wrong, but I have to get rid of that before it will let me e-file.  How can I get that W2 section deleted?

If you haven't already filed your return, please take the following steps to delete your W-2 information in TurboTax:

  • In your return, click on Federal Taxes tab
  • Click on Wages & Income tab
  • Under "Your income", "Job (W-2)", find the W-2 on which you want to make a change, and click on Edit/Add button
  • On next page entitled "Here's your W-2 info", you will see W-2 listed, under Employer's name
  • To the far right of the listed W-2 you will see a trash can - click on the trash can
  • A pop-up screen will display, asking if you are sure that you want to delete the W-2 - click on Yes button
  • W-2 will be deleted
