Turbo tax stopped my filing because my NJ FLI was 31.59 which exceeds max of 29.00? Can I just change the amount to 29.00?

The w-2 has 31.59 for NJ FLI tax box 14. Can I change the amount to 29.00 without any issues?

No...don't change anything.

 

The new FLI limits for NJ have not yet been implemented in the software..."supposedly" they will be by 28 29 January.  Come back then and go thru your error checks and reviews again after that date...it should clear by then.

 

And Don't attempt to file until AFTER 12 Feb.  The may be other things you actually "forgot" about and may get more tax forms you must include in your file.  The IRS is not starting to work on anyone's tax return until after 12 Feb, and filing early does not mean it will be processed any sooner.

I don't understand this. I lost more than I won so what is the problem?

NJ FLI is not related to losses. If you are referring to gambling losses, New Jersey does allow the gains and losses to be netted in the same category of income. For more information, see: 2020 Instructions for NJ-1040, page 9 and 20
