My computer will not open my 2011 tax return file. What can I do to finish my return?

I had no problem working on my 2011 return.    It is asking for a final review and will not allow me to add additional information to the return.  It only allows me to review the State Return and not the Federal Return.   It however wants me to fix errors on the federal return.   I need to add 1099 dividend and brokerage information and it will not let me.

    • I am having a similar issue. The information regarding the 1099 income I have entered in my federal return is not transferring to the state return. In the state return review it's telling me I must add the 1099 amount in the federal return but it's already there. How do I get the info into the state return?
    • I am having the same problem entering 1099 on my State return.  When Turbo Tax asked me to enter this infor on my State form, the instructions were to select the Tools icon search on 1099-R to find the amount that I should enter.  I can't open my state return to enter the data.  Help!

    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.
