I just finished preparing a state return and the result was $1 owed! This makes me think the program is trying to give me a red flag that something is off! Final review check out but I've had this happen a few times before, like every year at least once. Just seems odd to ask the client to send in a check for $1.
Should I trust the outcome, or is the program trying to tell me something?
Any opinions are appreciated!!
Follow the money through the return, its completely possible to owe $1 or have a $1 refund
I generally have the client opt for direct debit for $1 owed, or donate the $1 refund to charity (CA lets you do this right on the return).
