I set up a 1065 with 3 partners, then added NJ 1065. THEN I had to go back and delete the 3rd partner, but NJ 1065, even after deleting the NJ 1065 and re-opening it, STILL shows a phantom K-1 and it will NOT be deleted.
I removed state, saved, closed, re-opened, but when opening NJ the phantom is still there.
I removed state, saved. Copied the file using Win10 in a new named tax file without NJ 1065. Opened it, opened NJ, phantom appears.
I cannot e-file with a phantom. Other than re-entering everything, can this return and my work be saved?
I had one like that haunting me on a Minnesota return last year. I don't remember exactly what I did but if I remember correctly, even though I thought the partner was deleted on the federal, there were some remnants left that caused the problem on the state. Go back and into the federal return and make sure everything has been completely eliminated for the K-1.
Nope. Every time I go to NJ 1065, the phantom K-1 appears. When the e-file box is checked for NJ, the phantom K-1 has errors SINCE THERE IS NO DATA.
The errors go away when it is NOT set for e-filing NJ.
On the federal K-1 w/s, I pressed "delete" on every single box in that section. Still NJ has a phantom.
My situation was exactly the same as yours. I paper filed one year because I couldn't figure it out and then I spent a bunch of time before I finally figured it out the following year. Have you gone in and clicked "remove K-1 worksheet" on the blank worksheet? If you don't have a ton of K-1s, have you tried removing the K-1 worksheet until you have none ------ and then clicked on remove K-1 worksheet a couple of more times for good measure and then tried reentering the partner info?
