Injured Spouse Form 8379

Highlighted
Level 1

Unable to clear Ln 15b, Taxes paid. The amount in the box matches the taxes paid on Sch A but I get an error message and cannot clear the error.  "Line 15b joint has an unacceptable value" is the error message. Cannot be cleared either with override.

Any ideas community?

if you have an amount in MFJ column, then split the amount and enter it in injured spouse column, and the other spouse column, and the error will go away

I'm using Pro Series Professional. I have repeatedly done as you said and program will not remove the error. I know the calculations are correct, but no matter how I do it will not remove the error. Any suggestions?

Joint column A-F must = G.

injured spouse column A-F must be 1/2 of joint column 

other spouse column A-F must be 1/2 of joint column

Joint column G must = injured spouse G + other spouse G

This is what I have, and I have no errors. Not sure it matters, but I have checked community property state checked at top of form.
