Can't generate a CA form 3840

I'm trying to generate a California form 3840 but can't get the program to give it to me.  I've filled in all the information (I think) in the California Like-Kind section of depreciation but nothing.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Is there any CA income, or is this someone that moved out of state and needs to file the 3840?

Did you complete Screen 55 to complete the  540NR?

This is a full year CA resident who did a 1031 selling a CA property and acquiring 6 properties.  One of these was CA and the balance were out of State properties

540NR is not an issue.

*Maybe* has to do with the fact the instructions aren't available on the FTB website?

Lacerte often uses that as an excuse for the forms being 'unavailable'.

It's not a problem with form availability. In fact I'm trying to generate it from both the 2019 and 2020 programs and I get the same lack of response.

I am having the same issue.  I have entered all the information.  The 8824 is correct, and I have entered all the information in the CA Like Kind Exchanges, but the CA For 3840 does not generate.  Were you able to get resolution?

No, I finally did the form manually and electronically attached it to the return.
