We have a S corporation where we will make an election to file a short tax year due to changes in ownership
I can not find in lacerte where we can do this - thinking I will have to file a paper return and just hand write in the dates
If you're doing the split-year election under IRC 1377(a)(2), be aware that you do not file two short-year returns. You file one return for the full year, and override the K-1s so each owner pays tax on their ownership period. The last time I did one of those, it took multiple Lacerte files just to produce correct K-1s, because you can't always override everything.
