RECOVERY REBATE CREDIT

Level 1

In ProSeries Basic, I had 2 dependents listed on the parents return, a carryover from 2019.  I deleted the top dependent, to file their own return, but left the second dependent on the second line.  Only 1 dependent showed on the 1040, BUT since line 1 was blank, the recovery rebate credit calculated another dependent and added $1100 ($500 + $600) to the return.  I had to move the dependent up to the first dependent line in PART III Dependent Information.

Yeah, other folks have reported the "unexpected behavior".

I know in Professional, you can Right click and Delete Line in Table for things like that, it would have deleted the first dependent and line completely, moving number 2 up to that spot. 

You should check if Basic has a similar function.

Good point.  I don't know if those other folks just deleted the data for the kid or if they actually tried deleting the data line.
