"Form 2441: Qpcredbn is marked as estimate. Enter correct number and then select "Unmarked Estimate...". No fields marked as "estimate". Tried everything. Help!!

I used the "estimate" a lot, so I'm very familiar with setting it and then later removing.   I originally set the figure as "estimate" on the dollar amount field we pay in child care as well as the field you enter how much you paid your specific childcare provider.   I did it in the step by step process.    Later I got the exact figures, entered them, and then unmarked as estimate.  During review, received the error that I needed to remove as estimate.  Tried to without any luck.  Tried also doing it from the forms view. Still no luck.  Finally went back to step by step and deleted both lines for amount we pay and also for our childcare provider.  Rebuilt both but the error remains.  VERY frustrating!

I ended up going into Forms view and deleting Form 2441. Switched back to step by step and re-entered all the childcare info.  It worked!  Error gone and I was able to file.

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.
