I am entering a 1099-R into Lacerte individual and it wants a telephone number per the diagnostics. Is this the phone number of the institution? If so, they don't show up on the 1099. We don't have time to look up the phone numbers of all of the 1099s that we input this tax season. Help!!!
Put the Lacerte support phone number in there. The IRS isn't going to call the number, but just in case they do, support can explain to them why they haven't updated their software.
