A client sold a house in 2017 in an installment sale resulting in some gain. She received the first installment payment in 2017 and Lacerte generated both a 6252 and CA 3805E. No Problem.
In 2018, the client received the second installment payment. This time Lacerte generated a 6252 with Part II properly populated. However, for California, Lacerte would not generate a 3805E, even though it properly populated Part II of it just as it did with the 6252.
Looking at the instructions, it looks as though there are some minor changes that affect the reporting of this form. Take a look at the General Info and Purpose section. If your property still applies, you'll need to reach out to support so an agent can take a look at your scenario and determine if additional input is required, or if a possible issue exists.
