Expenses Exceed Commission Income Warning

I found this solution on the FAQ but for the life of me I cannot find this box!!!  Getting very frustrated.  I have both salary and commission but TT restricting expenses to commission income only.  I found a solution but cannot execute it.

If you wish to claim the expenses in this manner: On the Other Employment Expenses screen, choose NO to the question "Do you want to Limit expenses to your commission income (if Applicable)?


On the Personal Tax Profile, on Page 1, Check the following boxes to add the Employment Expenses screen to the interview:
  • Check the box for 'I was employed'
  • Check Yes to the question Did you have expenses related to your employment.
  • Check the Type of Employment expense box as applicable to your situation. Be sure to check 'I had Employment expenses', if you need to claim expenses on the T777.
  • Once selected, you can click Continue until you reach the Employment Expense Profile screen

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.
