I spent nearly 2 hours today trying to get this solved with a very kind Proseries customer service employee, however it seems to be a glitch in the program.  I am trying to simply file a SMLLC California tax form.  Therefore, the federal form should not matter.  I fill out all of the data on the federal (1065) as well as the State form (568) and keep coming back to the same problem.  When setting up the one K-1 that is needed to identify the single member i input "DE" under partner entity type.  This supposedly represents a Single Member, but some how the error for the ID No. field still comes up as needing 2 members for the partnership.  The problem is its not a partnership.  If i try to make a dummy partner to resolve the federal form error, then there is an error on the state form   because it is being filed as a "Single member LLC" with 2 members.  My only choice seems to be to file a paper return, and that is not what the client signed for.  If anyone knows more about this or has an answer I would greatly appreciate it, or perhaps it truly is a glitch in the system that needs fixed.  It shouldn't be this difficult to file an SMLLC State form. It is a very common scenerio.  Thanks.

SMLLCs don't use a 1065, you file on Sch C and then mark the box at the top of Sch C  that's its a CA LLC then you can access the 568 right from the 1040, just like any other state return.

Ooo, good question, Im not a Basic user, Im not sure if they have the 568....when you choose t install products in Basic, is the Ca LLC one of the choices?

or if you mark the CALLC box ta the top of the Sch C,  does Basic give any diagnostic about the LLC return being unavailable?

I just looked and I don't see that choice in basic, so I will try to import the client's basic 1040 file into the Professional program and check it out.  I am not use to using 1040s in professional.

when you click Go to State you will see Cal LLC listed as a State.  also do 540.  when you efile, all 3 are filed together.

Sadly, support should know what Lisa just said and you shouldn't have had to waste 2 hours.


The more I know, the more I don't know.
