The 2017 State Tax Refund Info section on the carryover worksheet is telling me that the total overpayment cannot exceed the withheld or paid. When will this be fixed?

On all clients?  I have not seen that message on any client returns yet.

Most if not all of these are because client received more money back on state than the state withholding.  It is my belief and you can check the previous year, but most of those clients did not itemize.  they are low income that got extra benefits from refundable EIC or child care credits on the state return.  So check to see if they itemized on federal for previous year.  If so override one of entries to match the other and move on to next return.  I have probably had 40 of them already.

I’ve seen it too.  I just entered zero for the refund and called it good.
