There seems to be a difference this year when inputting multiple Capital gains worksheet codes including M for attached PDF files. When you add a second code W say for wash sales Form 8453 pops up again in the Forms in Use column although it is totally blank. In prior years Form 8453 would disappear altogether once you indicated you were attaching a PDF. If you only have a single code M Form 8453 will disappear from the forms in use column.
@Orlando I dont think this is officially your department, but I havent been getting much response to things I report in the Lounge or tag Austin in, so maybe you could hand this off to the correct place?
Correct. I can get the correct tax result. The wash sale adj amount is properly making an adjustment to the loss and the correct multiple codes (MW) are showing. It's just that Form 8453 won't go away and it looks like it will get sent blank to IRS. So I'm not sure if IRS will send client a notice saying no Form 8453 was received. (well, the reason is that the 1099-B activity was attached as a PDF.) The Form 8453 also prints out on the client copy so I have to remove that otherwise client might get confused. This has never happened in the 30 years I have had ProSeries. It's only because Intuit changed the input forms and hasn't noticed this program glitch. There has to be others who are having this problem. Whenever you get a 20-25 page 1099-B it is not unusual at all to have some wash sale activity.
This Form is not listed under either Filing Copy or Client Copy for elimination. I could pull the client copy but it is the Filing Copy I am trying to eliminate.But thanks for the suggestion. Intuit needs to fix this. Please Intuit can you fix this??
