California Unemployment - changed after return filed in proseries ???????

Level 3


It looks like Proseries went back and changed California unemployment to be split between joint filers so that if a spouse received 20,400 it is ALL non taxable.

I went back and looked at several of my previously filed returns, and they have all been changed.

My understanding is that in the case I listed above, only half would be non taxable and half would be taxable, as it all belongs to the spouse - I realize that up to 20,400 could be non taxable - but my understanding was that both spouses would have to have unemployment of 10,200 each for this to be the case.

Obviously I could be wrong, and probably am, and it looks like Proseries updated unemployment, adding a community property box.

Ugh. Sorry, this is just irritating.  I (after my pathetic rant) am going to re-read the update on what was changed in the program.

Ok, I see that the program went and corrected to reflect community property states and that even if only one spouse received the unemployment, the total non taxable is 10,200 x 2 = 20,400.

This is why I HATE that these changes were made DURING tax season.
