Turbo Tax is stating that the Statutory Employee box is checked when it is not. This is screwing up my Schedule C not allowing me to file

I reviewed both W2s and neither has the box checked, but it is checked on the Schedule C and it won't file with a zero in the amount box.  I don't want to make a fake schedule C to link zero dollars to it as it may cause the same hold up and the IRS will most likely not look upon that favorably either.

Sorry, this is what I learned.  Be careful where you put zeros.  You should just leave fields blank.  Putting a zero in a field will autofill zeros in other fields that are tied to other fields on the form triggering problems.  Naturally you search through the form to see what it is telling you and it is unrelated.  Frustrating, but this cost me a couple of hours.
