Customer Question
I purchased my 2015 Turbo...
I purchased my 2015 Turbo Tax , but first I need to fix my 2014 return which has been prepared in Turbo Tax Home & Business, but has not been filed. It's still on my computer & editing is available. I was waiting for info that I needed & just received. It causes me to need to edit the "Less Common Income" section, at the bottom under, Misc income. I put in $53,750. but now, I did not actually get the funds (court fight), and need to make that number zero.
I followed all the steps, but I can't figure out how to actually access the line where I can edit the number.
Thanks,
Gordon
