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.
- 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.
- Next, locate and delete Form 1040 from your return.
- For assistance with this, please use the How Do I Delete Forms From My Tax Return?. Refer to the Delete Forms Manually section.
Workaround #2 - Start a New Return
Unfortunately, if Workaround #1 does not work, a new return will need to be created.
