I have a rental property on a federal return. The property is in a different state than the resident state. (Alabama is the resident state). Year after year I end up doing something in the software that is illogical to make it work. Any suggestions on how to make the Alabama adjustment in the software?
adjustment for what?
Its all taxable in the resident state, then you do a non resident state for the rental income.
Use the non resident state allocation worksheet at the bottom of the federal info worksheet.
Resident state generally (theres a few that are vice versa) gives credit for taxes paid to the non resident state (prepare the non resident state first to get that to flow easier).
Guess it's hard to answer questions on state returns. 😞
Alabama CLEARLY has a form for taking out income that doesn't belong to Alabama.
Concerning if the property was in a state without tax.... ????? Thank you for the info. Clearly not a question that was asked.
Not many of us here do a lot of AL returns.
If you had mentioned "Alabama CLEARLY has a form for taking out income that doesn't belong to Alabama" in your original post, we would have a better idea of what you were asking. The more info you provide (and you get LOTS of space) the more likely you are to get a good answer.
