SSA-1099 SM - impossible to file electronically when no W-2 wages are reported

When I file my SSA-1099 SM disability alone with no other W-2 wages to be reported, the taxable and adjusted income (7a, 8a) are left blank, hence I can not file my tax return electronically. Is this behavior by design or is there a way around it. This would make Turbo Tax completely useless for electronic filing when only SSA-1099 is reported..

SSA-1099 SM - impossible to file electronically when no W-2 wages are reported

Those whose income is solely on an SSA-1099 do not have to file a Federal tax return.

 

IF you wish to do so anyhow for some reason (or had Fed taxes withheld on that SSA-1099), then you need some type of other income entered.  Put in $1 of interest on a 1099-INT form, from your bank and that will allow you to e-file  (more $$ if you actually received more interest on your bank account ).

Thanks for your response. The trick with $1interest may just work for me. Still I thought that SSA-1099 filers have to file if their taxable income is somehow above the limit (not my case)

Only have SSA (no fed tax withheld) and income from an IRA distribution. I have no W-2 wages. Marked button "No W2s" but it won't hold, keeps bouncing to W2 income.  Tried saving when No W2 button marked but still didn't hold.

@PLO 

hard to know.....You might have an empty transferred W-2 from last year that is not apparent but needs to be deleted.

 

Talk to Customer Support, and let them work thru it with you.
