How do I remove the "Employment Expenses" part of my return, which was added in error, due to Turbotax ignoring my "NO" response to it's question?

Turbotax Deluxe added an "Employment Expenses" section even though I clicked "NO".  Now it says I need to wait for a form before I can file, that isn't available yet.

I just want to delete or get rid of that section, since it is all zeroed out anyway, so the form will no longer be required and I can go ahead with filing the return.


I did the recommended solution and it said it deleted the form, but it didn't, so I still have the same problem.

Go to Forms, on the upper right, then select the 2106 on the left.  Click on it to open it , scroll down and Delete. with Delete button on the bottom.  You should not "zero out" amounts anywhere in TurboTax unless you are specifically told to enter a zero if you have none.  The program reads zeroes as an amount, just an acceptable amount.

How do I remove the "Employment Expenses" part of my return, which was added in error, due to Turbotax ignoring my "NO" response to it's question?

Turbotax Premier added an "Employment Expenses" section even though I clicked "NO"  After answering NO to Teacher Expenses, I also answered NO to employment expenses. TurboTax ignored my NO, and then asked me for my occupation, and then asked a bunch of questions. And just for me, not my spouse.  I answered NO, but that was ignored, and thus it created a useless form 2106 with occupation listed as UNKNOWN. And that was for me. It did not go through this for my spouse? 1st, why ignore my no and create the form, and two, my then not for my spouse? What now?
