Why does Turbo Tax display my ex-husband on all questions (i.e. "Did you and John hire a live-in nanny?") even though I am marked divorced and have been since 2019?

I can see my status is correctly marked divorced-- But I cannot actually speak to his half of these issues and feel uncomfortable answering the questions as they're phrased.

You cannot remove an ex spouse from an account that was previously joint.   You need to start a NEW account with a new ID and password with just your information and abandon the old account.

Welp, that's a bummer since it was my account for years beforehand. C'est la vie. Thanks so much for the speedy reply!
