If you have already filed your return with the IRS the only way to correct it is to file an amended return.  There is a special form for doing so.  When I did it several years ago it was the 1040-X.  If you check the IRS web site you should be able to download a copy.

I don't know if TT supports filing an amended return or not.  In any case, the form looks just like the regular 1040, but with two columns for every line.  You enter the original numbers you submitted for every line in one column, and the corrected numbers in the other column.

You misunderstood my question completely.

If you have finished preparing your return, open your return (if not already open), then go to the left menu column and click on the REVIEW tab.  Go through that section to see if all is in order, or if there are any other errors or issues.

 

Then go to the FILE tab to choose a filing method and continue answering the screens there.  If you are efiling, then be sure to go all the way to the end and click a big orange button "Transmit Returns Now."

 

NOTE:  If you log in and can't continue your return because TurboTax thinks you were finished, and your return interview is closed, here's how to open it back up so you can resume, finish, and file.  At the Tax Home page look for a link "Add a State."   That doesn't really add one, but will open the return interview back up.  Then you should be able to get to the REVIEW tab, then the FILE tab, etc.
