Main difference is Lines 5, 6, and 9 are missing from 2018. I'm not sure what is driving those line calculations because I see amounts on those lines in 2019.
Also, I believe since the W2 has $5,000 in both years, they should only qualify for $200 credit. However, 2018 is calculating $0 while 2019 is calculating $1200.
2018 has some kind of issue with the earned income of one of them...if Line 5 of the 2441 is blank that means someone didnt have any earned income.
Maybe all W2s got assigned to only 1 person by accident? Did the self employed person have a loss?
You're right. Both W2's were classified under one spouse in 2018. I updated 2018 and the credit adjusted to $200 which is what I expected.
However, 2019 is showing $1200 for the credit. I believe it should be $200 for 2019 as well but this time the W2's are correctly applied to 1 per spouse.
Thank you for your help. I now see that there was an override entry in 2019 that was somehow making the return eligible for the $1200. I removed it and it now properly calculates at $200.
Thanks for all your help and the quick response times.
