Return was filed and accepted by IRS The return was never changed but when I opened return yesterday Pro Series said the return has been changed and asked me if i wanted to display the changes.
too strange since I never opened return until yesterday.
Except this time client received letter of additional tax due because there was no #8801 attached.
Really strange since this form is automaically generated and carryforward from last year and clients copy had it attached to their return.
I once had a client get a letter telling him the Sch E was missing from the return when it was clearly included, so it seems like they can have forms that get omitted or maybe corrupted/unreadable during transmission.
I had same exact thing happen this week. Client received bill from IRS for amount on form 8801. I opened return in pro series and a screen popped up showing return had been changed. I called pro series support and would have got a better reply from my 6 year old grandson. I am going to file amended return with a new form 8801 , but the form did go with original return.
