I prepared form 5695 for clients in 2018. Of course those forms weren't filed since the energy credit wasn't extended at that time.
Now that the energy credit has been extended for 2018 I ran a query through the 2018 client analyzer tool. However, no clients appeared.
How do I see a list of clients that need to file 2018 amended returns to claim the energy credit?
I had many clients that should've been able to claim the energy credit for 2018 but couldn't because at the time the credit had expired - therefore - the Form5695 wasn't completed. How did you complete the Form 5695 BEFORE the extender was past? I can't recall for sure but wouldn't it have given you an error for e-filing? My point is the query can't work if the info isn't there.
I made myself a nice list with a word document of those that would be eligible for amending if it was extended.
If I recall from last year, PS allowed us to prepare forms like 5695 in case the IRS extended the credit. I was allowed to e-file.
This year when I looked at a client's 2018 tax return there was an error marked for F 5695, for a question to be answered before the return could be amended to claim the credit.
I remember that there was a feature in PS that showed clients who had 2018 deductions/credits that were finally extended after the 2018 tax deadline. I know I had other clients who couldn't claim the energy credit in 2018 so I ran the query but no clients showed up.
I know there are other clients who have 2018 F 5695 because I saw them when I compared their 2019 tax returns to their 2018 tax return. I didn't bother to write them down since I knew there was a feature that allows us to see what 2018 tax returns were impacted by the extender.
Is it a different query than client analyzer that I should run to see what clients need to amend to claim any 2018 extended deductions/credits?
Yes and the message says no clients met the criteria for the "Has Form 5695 Nonbusiness Energy Property Credit" query.
However, I know there are clients that meet that criteria.
Any ideas what I have to do so the query shows tax returns impacted by the extenders?
