Federal and CA Married Filing Separate - CA residents - Income is not working out and is under reported

Highlighted
Level 2

For MFS Federal Return:  Client has community property income (CA).  I input the W2 info as received and then entered the community property under Input>General>Community Property Allocation.  Tax return did not take into account community property income.  Has anyone been able to get this to work and flow?  If so, how? Does it then flow to CA return or is that an adjustment too in this sofware?

The form is not designed to flow the numbers anywhere.

That's why this allocation should be your first step of preparing the return, to guide the rest of your input for income/expenses/credits from community vs separate properties.
