Hi,

...

Can you tell me what software you're using?

Hi Lane: I believe windows XP, however I just downloaded windows 10. I had done all my work before I did that. I hope this helps.

That IS another good piece that might come into play ... But I was asking which tax software (turbotax, tax act, h&r block online, etc.)

OK, I'm not intimately familiar (I use one of the intuit professional tax prep programs for my clients) but what I'm told by the intuit support folks that I have access to is ... any time you need to correct an error on your return ... or just don't feel right about anything ... the best course of action is to restart the interview process for the section that needs to be corrected. Any new responses you enter will effectively replace your old answers.

Also, I just found something similar in the intuit support forum:

...

"In order to correct the information you have to go back to the section that need to be corrected. For example, if you want to make federal taxes correction in wages and income section, access your account and select federal taxes wages and income. The software has two options, one is guide me and the other is to explore on your own. You can also search for the information topic you want to correct. Go to my account, tools, topic search, write the section to be corrected chose the item and select go. Turbo Tax will take you directly to the section you want to make the correction. "

...

This seems to concur that the basic path for these personal intuit products is to go back and re-do the "section."

Here's another forum entry that seems to convey the same thing:

...

You should be able to edit any information in your return by signing in to turbotax, click on the "Finish My Taxes" button, and on the left hand column you will see several options such as "Home" "Personal Info" "Federal" "State", etc. depending on what you're wanting to edit, you can click on whichever tab and once you get to the "summary" page after all the information has been entered, you will see a list of all the sections you entered with "Edit" buttons next to them. There you can edit whatever information you have entered that you want.

...

Is this helping?

I am not.familiar with this. However, I will try to see if I can do it. The Turbo Tax forms fill the whole screen. I did go into the screen that you spoke about, but I didn't see a topic that fit what I needed,
I appreciate you help and information, I will go back and try to see if I can correct the 8 mistakes.
Thank you for your time. I have been so frustrated trying to accomplish getting these mistakes taken care of.
You have a great day and thank you again for your help.

You're welcome Ann,

...

I'm going to make what's called an additional services offer here, so that, if you continue to have trouble, we can get on the phone and work through it together .. might be quicker and easier that way - Only accept if you'd like that option.

...

Otherwise, I'd appreciate a positive rating (by clicking the stars or smiley faces on your screen) ... that's the only way I'll be credited for the work here.

...

But please some back here if you're still having trouble

Hi Lane:I think most of these are easy fixes. It's just getting to the right place and removing and putting in the right answer. I would love to speak with you on the phone. I have to take my husband to the Dr. we had a home invasion with 2 black guys. they kicked in the back door, after they took bolt cutters and cut the cyclone fence from the golf course and went over our back wall. They beat both of us up . The one beat my husband so bad that he was in the trauma center at the Hospital, with severe bleeding on the brain. They took our wedding rings and of course jewelry and money. It was very traumatic. Is there someway that I could speak with you later in the day?
Financial Professional: Lane, JD, CFP, MBA, CRPS replied 2 years ago

I'm so sorry - Yes absolutely

...

For some reason the system is not letting me make an offer ... But I'll be checking with the site people and see if they can get this fixed.
