It wont let me delete the 2441 form why

How do I delete Form 2441 in TurboTax Online?

 

An incomplete Form 2441 will be created if you start the Child and Dependent Care section but don't complete it. This can cause problems when attempting to file your return.

To resolve:

  1. While signed in to your return, search for child care credit (use this exact term) and select the Jump to link at the top of your search results.
  2. This will take you to the Did you pay for child or dependent care in 2019? screen. Answer Yes (even if the real answer is no).
  3. Clear all boxes on the next screen, Whose care did you pay for? and Continue.
  4. Now you'll need to delete the 2441. From the left menu (tap in the upper-left corner on mobile devices to open the menu), select Tax Tools followed by Tools and and select Delete a Form in the pop-up.
  5. Scroll down the list of forms and select Delete next to Form 2441.
  6. Click Delete Form to confirm. You should get Form Successfully Deleted. Select Continue.
  7. Back at the Review Form List screen, scroll down to make sure Form 2441 no longer appears on the list. If it doesn't, you can select Continue With My Return.

I am having the same issue. the instructions listed from 2019 do not work. Tried numerous times, deleted the form only to show up as an error: fix form 2441. Any advise from Turbotax on 2020 MacBook version ?  I have no provider nor costs

If you have information in the 2441, even if it is from last year, you will not be able to delete it.

 

To be sure there is no residual data go to:

  1. Deductions and Credits
  2. Child and Dependent Care Credit
    1. Not Child and Other Dependent Tax Credits
  3. Did you pay for child or dependent care in 2020?
    1. Say yes so you can check entries
  4. Continue through the interview and clear any entries.
