Tax Help and Government instructions both state that a decedent's estate is entitled to a $600 exemption. If I check the "Final Return" box, the $600 exemption disappears. I believe that this must be a software problem as the instructions from the IRS provide a $600 exemption for a decedent's estate without regard to whether it is a final return.
I would appreciate any input regarding this.
oops, that is for Lacerte
This must be the one PA was thinking about
