I get an error when tryin to file because 1040 worksheet line 11 Schedule 3 is too large. It is zero. how can it be too large

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.

Can you provide instructions for TurboTax Premier Desktop version? 

I deleted Sch SE-T and followed instructions, but it did not clear the tax deferral worksheet information.  Do I need to go back and delete everything related to self employment and re-enter?  If so, can you provide a list of everything that needs to be deleted to clear the TurboTax worksheet section?

 

Thanks
