This is so frustrating. In ProSeries the place I am directed to put the withholding from a K-1 is on the tax payments worksheet line 14. However, a number cannot be put on that line. It pops up and say the line is automatically calculated and suggest overriding. However if you override you get another message that says it
won't calculate properly. Having state income tax withheld on a K-1 is very common. THERE SHOULD BE A SIMPLE SOLUTION. It should not be this complicated.
it does make a difference.
any state tax withheld from a K-1 is entered on the K-1 input sheet.
In the case of Partnership it is entered on the Sch K-1 Partnership additional info 1
scroll down the page to Code W: Other deductions
Line 5 State income tax withheld State Name and amount
If there is more than one State with withholding, it requires a little more creativity but for one State it is easy.
