Form 1065

Getting error message on Form 1065, Designation of Partnership Representative (PR).  Error(s) is "If the PR is an entity." 

Form 1065 correctly lists one of the partners as a representative, but what is the entity question about?

Highlighted error fields look as though I may have a boxed checked "YES" somewhere, but I can't seem to locate it... any others having similar issues?

Thanks!

Do you mind sharing what you changed? I'm running into the same thing for some reason.

On Part V of the Partnership Information Worksheet I had the Partner box AND the Partnership Representative box checked... I deleted the check-mark from the Partnership Representative box and that cleared the error message.

In prior years I had both boxes checked and no error messages... don't know what happened this year with ProSeries Professional.

Hope the above info helps.

Hi Marty - Thank you for your reply.

I tried unchecking that (mine is a 1065 but for an LLC) - anyway, still stuck.  Guess I'll be contacting support to find out why in the world this won't clear.

I am having the same problem. I spent two hours yesterday with Proseries. Their final answer was that they could not help me. I hung up. The deadline for filing is TODAY! We really need help with this.

I was finally able to get to a point where the error messages were eliminated, but ProSeries was no help.  Not the first time they hung me out to dry!

Re-visit Part V, Taxpayer Signature Information... try deleting the information you currently have in the required fields, then re-enter it.  Both my federal & state 1065's were accepted.

I found a fix! Uncheck all of the PR boxes and manually put in the PR information. The pink boxes below go away!
