Morning, George.  The OP who uses Lacerte probably caught you at the early hours. 😉

The Lacerte equivalence is the Cash Contributions section of Screen 25.

I've been meaning to ask you guys, what is on screen -1 in Lacerte? 😑

Theoretically, that should bring you to the home screen since -1 is technically 0. 😂

I was just thinking about that when I saw this post because I just received my latest commission check from Intuit for $-1.

I'd keep that if I were you.  Could be worth something, someday, as a rare collectible. /s

That's what I said, just not as eloquently. I will add this from the F1 help button
"1=deduct charitable contributions if taking the standard deduction
Schedule A Current Year Contributions Screen 25; Code 1420


Enter 1 to both force the standard deduction and to deduct the lesser of $300 or the amount of current year charitable cash contributions entered."
