where is the federal personal information worksheet?

I continue to enter my husbands SSN but it continues to tell me to "check this entry". I have checked it 10 times.
  • I keep having the SAME problem!  If you found the answer please please post it!!!
If the SSN is entered on the State Information Worksheet:

I would suggest that the information be deleted from the State Information Worksheet, and entered as follows:

- Click the Wrap Up tab and review the error messages
- When the State Information Worksheet error message appears, delete the data (since it will be entered on the federal Personal Information Worksheet, it then will appear on the state Information Worksheet)
- Click the Tools button
- Select Topic List
- Under "3. Federal Taxes, select Error Check (you may need to expand the topic by clicking the "+")
- When any errors for information (name, social security number, etc) appear, enter the information
- Click the State Taxes tab, and continue through a few state screens (this should trigger the information to flow to the state return)
- Click the Wrap Up tab and review the error messages, make any needed fixes

  • I am having the same problems with New York and New Jersey ...and your solution doesn't fix anything.  There are no errors with my federal forms.  New York and New Jersey say that I shouldnt enter my spouse's SSN and name on the state sheets.  When I remove them, it tells me they are missing.
  • I am having the EXACT same problem. It is aggravating.
  • This is an obvious issue and I am disappointed that an answer has not been addressed by a Turbo Tax Rep. I am in Wisconsin and I have no federal errors - state does require spouse information. When I enter the required fields, another error appears stating that the information should not be entered. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
  • I am having the same issue and am unable to file Delaware state return.  Has anyone found the solution to this? Has TT responded?  Please share....
  • I am filing a WI return as well with the same error. Did you ever get any assistance?
  • I am also having the same issue. We all need an answer
  • I went back and said I was filing single went and it took all my husbands info out. Then went through like I was in fact single and looped back and changed my status to married and reentered his info. and finally it worked!

People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
