Filing 2019 return won’t let me add 2019 born child

I get the error saying date is not in correct format when I try to add my 2019 born (30/03/2019) child as dependent on my 2019 income tax

Congratulations on the new child!

 

Are you using TurboTax Online or TurboTax CD/Download? Also, have you tried putting in the date in without the slashes? Ex: 30032019

When I'm trying to file online, I have the same error by adding my daughter date of birth 03/08/2019

Make sure you are not adding any slashes or spaces between the numbers --> the software will add them for you when you press enter

If you are filing multiple years, make sure you are in 2019, not a prior year return.
