How do I remove former spouse's info from TT state forms. Divorced 3 yrs but TT keeps putting her info in no matter how many times I review and remove. How do I clear it?

Former spouse's name and SSN keep appearing on Oregon Information Worksheet. Have tried at least 20x to remove but upon final review, info has reappeared. This has caused me to have to file my state return through via hard copy in the mail for the past two years.

If your former spouse's information is on your state forms, it is being carried over from an incorrect filing status on your federal information.  

For your tax returns to be accurate, TurboTax mush have your correct filing status.  

 

Go to Federal

My Info
Change your status to Single, Divorced, or Widowed

That will remove  your spouse's information from your federal and state forms..

Unfortunately, that did not work. When I pulled up my info tab per your instructions, all the information was current (i.e. - Divorced, filing single, only my information listed). My ex-wife's information ONLY shows up on one page of the Oregon State Taxes portion. It is an artifact from when we married that I cannot get rid of. I review my return, it gets flagged, I go back and delete her info from the form, i click review again, and poof!, all her info is there again. And because I cannot get that glitch to go away I ahve had to file

@MaryM428  Thank You!

 

That did the trick. It had my filing status as "Single" and my marital status as "Divorced". I changed both to "Single" and the other info went away!
