I want to file jointly, however my husband passed away in 2014. Turbo tax has not asked me for my income information (T slips) where do I enter my information?

When I selected "I am completing this for a deceased person" it no longer gave me an opportunity to enter my income information. It asked for my total income for 2014 from whatever line, but I have not filed mine as of yet. How do I file mine now when my information seems to be missing. I transferred my info from last years return.

When you carried forward and indicated your husband had passed away, TurboTax uncoupled the return (you can't prepare a coupled return in TurboTax when one of the spouses is deceased). At this point it appears you are only working in his return.

To do your return, go to the return manager (Tools > Return Manager) and click Create a New Return. Once you have done that you can go through the same steps as before to carry forward, but this time select to carry forward your return instead of your husband's. You can switch between returns at any time by going back to the return manager.

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.
