TurboTax won't efile because it says Form 14039 (ID theft) has improper home phone number. It is of form "(xxx) xxx-xxxx" exactly as cell phone. How to bypass and efile?

As shown in details, I fixed it by entering it without punctuation.  (Punctuation wasn't added to it as I entered the home phone;  Punctuation was added to cell phone number as I entered it.)

@129604583 You should receive a 1099-G to report your income from unemployment compensation. You would look for the TIN (tax identification number) located on that form instead of an EIN (employer identification number).
