Do you have a TurboTax Online account?

We'll help you get started or pick up where you left off.

I'm entering income. TurboTax is telling me my federal tax due is 8 times my income. or TurboTax is making an error. How can I find it?

I've been using TurboTax for years and never seen anything like this.

Double check the amounts that you entered and look for misplaced decimal points, extra zeros and typos.  Income is entered by you---the user---not by TurboTax.   The decimal and the comma are next to each other on the keyboard so it is easy to hit the wrong key.

And if you took a picture to import any forms, that can result in massive entry errors.

Double check every income entry.
