I'll still be using the regular 1040 for all clients, just like when we had the 1040EZ and 1040A.

Is there a way to program a default printing of 1040 (rather than 1040-SR) for all clients, or do I have to answer this question for each senior's return?

From within a client file, TOOLS > Options>Miscellaneous and there's a box to check.
You wont find the Misc choice if youre looking at Tools > Options from Homebase.

Even with the box checked the SR form is still printing as 1040 pages 3 & 4

I already need to scrap it and start over....I cant get the 1040 to shown in Print Preview or print out, if I have entered Sch C or Sch F income on the return (I didnt bother to test W2 income)....shows up and prints fine as long as I don't enter any SE income  LOL

Well miraculously I CAN print the 1040 by itself today (only had a blank white screen yesterday) and as an added bonus it prints the 1040SR along with it too....but its missing when I try to print the whole return...so I dunno if this is "by design" or I have a bad program ....sigh....

Having always done a second print job when the program printed a 1040-EZ or even worse a 1040-A, I plan to take some time in late December or early January to utilize the red exclamation point on each return with clients over the age of 65 to write a note (using Copy and Paste) to tell me to check the box to NOT file the 1040-SR.

I just printed a trial dummy return and it worked but even though this was a new client (named Test 2019), it calculated a penalty which is new.  In the past, Form 2210 showed the previous years's tax as zero unless you told it otherwise.

Since I have known the great majority of my clients for many years I am very aware of who is or isn't 65 or older but it would be a big help if that would be one of the questions under the Client Analyzer.

Do you think PS will put a global checkbox to suppress the new 1040SR for all clients? I, as of now have to desire to file this new form. But I like your idea re: red exclamation point idea.

Thank you and now if they would just put the 65 or older question in the Client Analyzer, it would be easy to search.

oh yeah, even better (I originally read your statement as going one by one).  If I had to go thru my list, Im sure I would get 95%. But an analyzer would be lickety-split.

AMEN to that! I won't be using the new 1040SR, especially since the 2019, 1040 has been improved.

Does Proseries use Screen ##'s ?  I thought that was just a Lacerte thing.

So @eluna is a a ProConnect I don't Care Agent? She is just proving how difficult it is to see which of the products is being used. I am waiting with BAITED breath for the new and improved forum to clarify all of this mystery.
