Supporting Detail doesn't allow negative numbers per line

bzwillin

Most supporting detail screens allow for negative adjustments which is sometimes need to move a value to another line.  I don't need the total of all the supporting detail to be negative, just be able to have negative adjustment against total entered to be a lesser value.  For instance, I might have 4 lines of detail 5000, 10000, 15000, -3000 for a total of 27000.   In know this works on screen 19 for sure for Individuals.  However, it doesn't work in Partnerships (Screen 12); SCorps (Screen 18) or Fiduciary (Screen 24).  I get DATA ENTRY ERROR, value must be between 1 and 999,999,999, which it will but not on a specific line of detail.

This was working in 2019 and prior version versions and was changed in 2020 and forward for some reason.

Yep... this issues was beat to death last year.  To no avail, of course as Intuit knows much, MUCH more about how to actually prepare returns in the real world.

Yes - frustrating and inefficient to have to use a sticky note or type in the text area what you could really do right in the supporting detail amount column.

This option will allow for faster, more efficient, more detailed, improved accuracy with return preparation -- software that improves work flow is highly valuable!

It only makes sense...

This should be a no-brainer.  This allows preparers to better trace steps and calculations to speed up efficiency and accuracy.
