Reporting interest income

ghaber

Taxpayer, a trust, received a Form 1099-INT reporting interest received that included a source that is taxable for Federal income tax purposes, but exempt from California income tax.  Can this be entered on the Form 1041 Schedule 1099-INT Worksheet so that the proper amounts will flow to the Federal and California tax returns or does an adjustment have to be made on the California Form CA-541 and, if so, where would that adjustment be made in ProSeries?

Thank, Lisa.  However, I'm not sure if I explained the problem correctly.  As an example, the client received a Form 1099-INT showing $1,000 in Box 1. This will flow the $1,000 to the state (California) tax return.  However, of the $1,000, the sum of $900 was from California bonds that are taxable for Federal Income Tax purposes, but Exempt from California in come tax.  The solution you suggested will not work in the example I just provided.

Why is CA bond interest taxable on the federal return?

So box 1 has 1000, which box is the 900 in?

The 900 is included in the 1,000.  This is an area not generally understood, or, for that matter, rarely seen by tax practitioners.  Here is a link that may help in understanding the nature of this interest: https://www.investopedia.com/terms/t/taxable-municipal-bond.asp.
