Remove form 8582

Hello,

Please tell me how to remove form 8582 from our tax return. My husband sold his business in 2016, and in 2018 the owners stopped making payments, so we effectively lost the value of the business and the remaining passive income that was supposed to come with it. However, this form still shows up every year on our Turbotax filings, even though we are both w-2 employees and show no other business ownership. Form 8582 loads full of zeros, but  I would like to have this form not appear in our tax return, since there is no need for it. Please tell me how to remove it from our taxes.  

If you can't get this resolved for me, I'll be forced to go to another tax preparation software.  Thanks.
