California SMLLC-Checkbox to suppress federal return

Kevin G

There should be a checkbox in lacerte to suppress any federal tax reporting for California Single Member LLC's. Lots of diagnostics and the letter refer to Federal stuff that is not applicable. Yes you can check the State only box when printing but seems there should be a simple way to just say it is a single member llc and nothing federal applies.

You can generate the SMLLC in Lacerte as part of the 1040 https://proconnect.intuit.com/community/individual/help/lacerte-individual-smllc-frequently-asked-qu...

If you must prepare it using a different module, you can process (print) it as state only. If only efiling state, remove the federal efile checkmark. 

You posted this as a suggestion for improvement, but it likely should have just been a product help question.

Yes, you can generate the SM LLC in 1040 but then you lose the visibility of listing all your SMLLC returns and running the risk of missing the separate efile required (as we did). Easier to keep all SMLLC returns grouped together in the 1065 module from a practice management standpoint.
