California's personal tax return is Form 540.  Just sayin'

Well, if you add a CA 540 to a CA 500, you got yourself a 1040.  

I'm guessing something popped up for you to post that?

Hmm... can't argue with your math.  but I don't think CA has a F 500 either..

Yes - "Ask an Expert" popped up.....  

I know it's petty, but shouldn't an "Expert" know the proper form numbers?

The 2 year old ask an expert post?   Maybe they had one two years ago,  If not, I'm sure they had a form 500 back then 😁

Jeff, one popped up this morning in MY software as an alert.

Maybe it's supposed to be Lacerte, but it would only let me mark PS.

YMMV

Actually, this is showing at the top of the Forum page - at least for me:

 Intuit experts are standing by to answer your California state product questions from 12-2PM EST Ask an Expert

And, since it was edited because of my post, the "CA 1040" is now gone.

I didn't see that.  Looks like CA is special that they get their own day today😀

Just updated! Thanks for the catch, my lack of CA form knowledge is shining through 🙈

It's in draft form, just waiting for independence to be declared again.
