You simply cannot.  The Tax Planner in PTO has many limitations and is just not ready for prime time, IMHO.

I am not even sure it is ready for the time between the flag flying and the farm report (I definitely am showing my age with this reference.)

I sadly do not get the references haha! BUT I am glad I’m not just crazy because we could not figure out how to change this number!!

But I’m still confused why they would leave that part out because it seems like you can change everything else.

Not everything else. For a start, you can't change the number of dependents. Someone spotted the other day that you can't change education credit either. For my own purpose, I can understand it's not yet programmed to handle international returns but to not even allow overrides renders the Tax Planner totally useless to me.

Ok yeah I didn’t even get past the income items so I shouldn’t say everything else.  But yes, completely useless because you cannot even override I noticed too!

@afredrickscpa I will put in a plug for my 2nd favorite tax program Tax Tools  It does a really thorough and down and dirty tax plan, plus dozens of other useful utilities. https://www.taxtools.com/products_tt.aspx
