Dependents Duplicated on Form 1040

An issue has been identified in which the same dependent will populate twice on Form 1040. 

Workaround #1 - Delete Form 1040

This isn't as scary as it sounds. Once the Form 1040 is deleted from your return, it will regenerate without losing any information, with the exception of the duplicated dependent entries.

  1. Save a Backup Copy of Your Tax Data File.  This will create a .tax20XX file on your computer that can be opened with a TurboTax desktop product.
  2. Next, locate and delete Form 1040 from your return.

Workaround #2 - Start a New Return

Unfortunately, if Workaround #1 does not work, a new return will need to be created.
