I keep getting errors for a form that doesn't apply to me (3554)

Hello. I am trying to file my taxes on TurboTax Premier Desktop version. Upon reviewing it, I keep getting these errors:

Form 3554: Base year cannot be prior to 2013.

Form 3554: Credit owner must be entered. 

Form 3554: Question E must be entered. 

 

As far as I can tell, this form does not apply to me. How do I stop it from showing up with errors, preventing me from e-filing?

Form FTB 3554, New Employment Credit, is used to figure a credit for a qualified taxpayer that hires a qualified full-time employee and pays or incurs qualified wages attributable to work performed by that employee in a Designated Geographic Area and receives a Tentative Credit Reservation for that employee.

 

If that doesn't apply to you, you can delete the form:

1. Sign into your account 

2. Select Tax Tools on the bottom left and then Tools

3. Select Delete a Form 

4. Find the form and select delete next to it

Thank you for the information. I am using the desktop version of TurboTax and don’t see the place to delete the form as you suggested. Is there a way to delete forms on the desktop version?
