The situation: A client was a full-year California resident in 2020. However, the client has moved out of California before the 2020 tax return will be filed.
In the Miscellaneous screen, for the California Miscellaneous section: The "Principal Residence Entries" ask for the client's "California county at time of filing". That dropdown box only provides the names of counties in California; it does not allow a choice such as "nonresident" or "moved out of CA". I also cannot type anything which is not one of the pre-set choices into that field.
If I leave this field blank, Lacerte gives me critical diagnostic #54848: "e-file: California requires a county be included for the principal residence."
Is there a solution so that I can e-file this California return?
