Oklahoma state form OW-8-P, Underpayment of Estimated Tax Worksheet is still not available in Lacerte Individual tax module. This form with its instructions is available on the Oklahoma Tax Commission website. This is generating a Critical Diagnostic which I don't like to override and thus is keeping me from filing returns which are otherwise ready to file. Does anyone know when this form will be included in Lacerte 2020?
I anticipate that Lacerte will give Oklahoma professionals a credit/refund for the REP processing charge associated with returns requiring the OW-8-P since the form has been available from Oklahoma for over a month. The credit for the total processing charge will just barely cover the cost of preparing the form manually. Just one month left before the due date of the returns.
We all know that Intuit will do what is right and have the best interests of its customers in mind. They wouldn't want to penalize a customer or cause financial harm just because they haven't had the time to get around to a simple change.
Yes, On the 27th I sent Lacerte an email to see if we could set up a telephone conference with one of the Commissioners with the OTC to see if we could iron out the issue that Intuit was experiencing with integrating the OW-8P. The next day the issue was resolved. Personally I don't believe anyone at Intuit was working on the issue. I suspect Intuit is having the same issues as everyone else, with people working from home. Hard to plan and supervise.
