Prior year state tax transfer type from 2017 appears to be incorrect?

I've looked at two clients for 2018 and both had this problem.  Both had itemized deductions on their 2017 returns and chose state income tax for the state tax deduction. Both got state refunds from 2017 in 2018.  On the 2018 returns, the state tax refund work sheets (with transferred information for 2017) mark them as having claimed the state sales tax as the state tax deduction.  This results in no taxable income from the 1099-G, which looks to be wrong.

Am I missing something or was/ is there a problem with transfering the state tax info from 2017 into 2018?

Yes there was an issue if you transferred early. There has been a correction but you'll need to re-transfer those clients you have not worked on yet. The others you manually make the change.

@Ashley  this is why bug blog or the list you started should be pinned to the top.... maybe the PTB can come up with a more pleasant name like "Great Enhancements and Resolutions that have been implemented or are coming soon."  or "What our Users want to know MOST"  

One sentence description of issue and a link to one post that users could comment or ask and would be best if administered by only a few....  but you get the idea.... everyone would a lot easier if we show the issues and resolutions quickly and up front.... how many calls does your help desk get about this everyday?
