TurboTax asks me to enter information about dependent which I do not have and never had.

I'm STUCK with TurboTax. I've two kids and they correctly entered in the system - verified it several times.

No problems with reviewing Federal return but upon reviewing my State return software asks me to enter last name of some 3rd dependent which I do not have.

It tells me: California Information Worksheet: Dependent's Last Name-3 must be entered.

I've attached picture which explains situation - I painted out by white my kids names/SSNs. And 3rd line is what TurboTax asks for - pointed by red arrows (I don't have dependent named 'So').

PLEASE HELP or I GIVE UP with TurboTax!!! No other way..

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.
