Form 1065 - Question 4 of Schedule B

I am filing a late (and final) Form 1065 for a business that had 0 income, 0 expenses, 0 assets, and 0 liabilities.

I am hesitant on answering "Yes' on question 4 of Schedule B because one of the points is that K-1s were furnished by the partnership deadline. They were not and and the partnership did not request an extension.

I am receiving the following error message: If question 4 of Schedule B, the "Partnership Met Requirement", is checked as "No", then Total Assets (Form 1065, Line F) must be significant or zero, AND Form 1065, Schedules L, M-1 and M-2 must be significant.

Does anybody have a solution for this?

File on paper.

Or don't file at all. Based on your numbers (zeroes), is there a filing requirement?

The purpose of filing is to notify the IRS and state that this is the final return.

Do you know how to address the critical diagnostic?
