Tennessee Franchise & Excise Tax...estimates..

Highlighted

So... the Tenn F & E return still defaults to printing estimates for every return..even when it's only the $100 minimum fee... WHEN, taxpayers are not required to make them unless $5,000 or more. I have sent @IntuitAustin  countless emails explaining EXACTLY where the problem is... and he doesn't even respond any longer.  I think he even has me blocked.  So, to the regulars...is there anyone up a level from him, that I can explain this problem to.  I do probably 100 Tenn F&E returns a year.. and they messed up this one item this year... and again, i explained to @IntuitAustin countless times, but he doesn't even respond any longer. My package is in excess of $6k a year... and this is ridiculous.

Hello,

I'll share here what I've shared in our private messages: 

In TY18, ProSeries was producing payment vouchers for TN franchise returns, but this year TN eliminated those vouchers. The program is automatically checking the box B 1a. You can read more about that by right clicking on the field and choosing About prior year tax box. Checking prior year versions of ProSeries, this behavior has been present since at least 2011. image (3).png

I confirmed with support that the only way to suppress the Estimated Tax Worksheet, is to check the A 1 box suspend estimated tax calculations.

I'll be happy to share your renewed feedback about this program function with our support and product team.

please do... as I explicitly told you what the problem was in how they had it programmed and the very detail that was incorrect.

 

We now have to OPT OUT of doing something  that is NOT EVEN required by the State of Tennessee.  We have to tell it to not generate even the most minimal estimates($100), when the State of Tennessee does not even require them for liabilities less than $5,000.  Explain the logic in that.   EFT or not.      AND, AND, this has never been what we had to do in the over 20 years I have used ProSeries.  And I asked you to have the programmers call me, so I could explain to them the simple solution, but for some reason, that has never been an option.
