Thank you for the response.
The issue here is that the client lived in one locality for 7 months and the other for 5. In order to get the local returns right I will have to create 2 different schedule C's, both of which will be wrong for federal and PA because they will only be for part of the year.
I was wondering if there is a way to do this in Lacerte that doesn't involve having to make a copy of the return and/or doing the schedule c 3 different ways in screen 16.
I don't know Lacerte, I use proseries. I would not create two schedule Cs. There is a worksheet where you can allocate to both local returns. You report 100% of income and than reduce it by the months not domiciled in each locality (you do the calculation manually).
