Trying to send the $25 for IT-204-LL. I am getting the error "not currently an active form on this return..." then tells me to go to federal info worksheet and check "no" in part V, then go back to NYS and save the return. There is nowhere in part V to do so. However in Part VI I can remove IT-204-LL, which I have tried doing and then going to NYS to save the return as the program suggested. However this hasn't worked.
it also seems to think filing IT-204-LL is unnecessary for this return, which may be the root of the issue, but I cannot understand why. It is an LLC that generated income in NYC and is not a disregarded entity.
Solved! Go to Solution.
In Part VI of Federal Information Worksheet for Partnerships you need to have the IT-204-LL checked as yes to e-filing original return before it will accept. In Individuals you also need to go to Part VI and "Check this box to file Other State payments?" and choose the IT-204-LL from the drop down box.
So frustrating....and of course, to get thru to help is an hour wait.
Not happy with the programming of this form in general.
Sooo many steps for a simple form.
And on top of that it doesn't work!
Wish i could easily track down where to complain
I completely agree.
If you are filing it for a PSE that appears on someone's personal return, on their federal info worksheet you also have to check off filing LL-4. It's a ways down toward the end of Part VI and appears as "electronic filing of other payments." then you open up the NY partnership worksheet and fill out all the stupid crap.
If you are doing it for an entity that files separately then it should work if you check it off in their federal info worksheet.
When you find where to complain, please let me know! We are new clients this year with ProSeries, and this issue is not acceptable. I have had 5 separate phone calls with Proseries over the last 2 days trying to find some help. It was frustrating dealing with customer support when I felt they knew as much about the program as I did. One person suggested I delete the state return, then I had to show her how to do it. When that didn't work, she suggested I remove the SOFTWARE!! Sorry, that is just not an option for me at this point.
