I am getting a "Check this Entry" it is saying 1040/1040SR Wks: Line 11 is too big. Line 11 says ZERO. We don't know what to do.

it won't accept a negative number. So 0 is the correct number to put in this line.

I am getting a "Check this Entry" it is saying 1040/1040SR Wks: Line 11 is too big. Line 11 says ZERO. We don't know what to do.

To get past this screen so you can file your taxes, you need to update Schedule SE-T.

 

The process: delete Sch SE-T, take a quick run through of the self-employment to recalculate Sch SE-T, and then turn off the Max Deferral.

 

To do this in TurboTax, follow these steps:

 

First, delete Sch SE-T that applies by following these steps:

  1. From the left menu, select Tax Tools.
  2. Select Tools.
  3. Scroll to Delete a Form.
  4. Scroll to Sch SE-T, select Delete, confirm the deletion.

Next, to replace Sch SE-T, return to the self-employment income & expenses interview in the Income & Expenses section and select Edit/Add.

  1. Select Edit for your business.
  2. Scroll down to Done so that the Sch SE is recalculated. 
  3. Finish any other questions in the self-employment interview and click Continue. 

Lastly, revisit the section for the Self-employment tax deferral entry:

  1. Return to the Deductions & Credits section.
  2. Scroll to Tax relief related to COVID-19 and Show More.
  3. Select Self-employment tax deferral and select Revisit.
  4. Answer Yes at the next screen to get back to Let's start by getting your eligible income.
    1. If you do not want to defer any self-employment income, "Enter your eligible self-employment income" should be blank.
      1. Select Continue.
    2. At Tell us how much you'd like to defer, "Enter amount" should be blank.
      1. Select Continue.
  5. Scroll down and select Wrap up Tax Breaks and Continue.
  6. Run through the Federal Review again.

I am getting the same error code but it seems to relate to AGI rather than self employment issue

If you are going through the error check and you get "Line 11 of your 1040/1040SR is too large" don't enter anything on line 11. When the error comes up, delete the zero (or whatever is there) and leave the box empty. 

 

Line 11 is your Adjusted Gross Income.
