Arkansas 8453-S Incorrect

Highlighted
Level 1

Lacerte 2018 multi-state S-Corp return with Arkansas as one of several states. E-File form AR8453-S Line 1, Total Income should populate with the amount from AR Form 1100S, Arkansas Column, Line 12 Total Income in Arkansas. Instead it is populating with the Total Column from all sources. The Arkansas amount should be zero but a return is required to be filed. The 1100S is correct, but the amount on the e-file form is pulling the total from all sources. Need assistance overriding this amount with the correct Arkansas only amount. Lacerte does not support a Jump to Input for this form.

Is the critical diagnostic the one that starts "There are differences between the Arkansas totals and the shareholders' allocations"? If so, that's not related to the 8453-S.

I can reproduce this problem, because I have it myself. I anticipate that the return will e-file without issue.

I don't think so. There is a Critical Diagnostic which appears to be related to this issue.

Yes, that is the diagnostic. I am also concerned that the incorrect amount is listed on the Arkansas e-file form.

I have a whole list of "there's no way to make Lacerte present this right" items on my multistate returns. No state has ever complained.
