EITC election to use 2019 earned income

Level 1

Calculation is correct when electing to use 2019 income.  My question is - isn't it supposed to enter "PYEI" and the 2019 earned income amount next to line 27 on Form 1040?  Otherwise, how will they know this is calculated based on 2019 earned income.

They are aware of this problem, be aware that it only happens when you enter the 2019 earned income manually, the software makes the calculations right but on the dotted lines it writes the amount of the 2020 earned income. If your client was your client in 2019 this problem does not occur, the software transfers the earned income from 2019 and 2020 automatically and if you use the 2019 it writes the 2019 income on the dotted lines like it is suppose to be. It is glitch, hopefully they will fix it before the official start date.
