Young child tax credit - Franchise Tax Board wrong or Pro Series wrong?

AnhNgoc
Level 3

California form 540: married filing joint with 1 child under 6 years old

Earned Income: $4,496

Unemployment Benefit: $25,500

=> Federal AGI: $29,996

Pro Series calculate:

- Earned Income Credit $1

- Young Child Tax Credit $1,000

=> Total refund: $1,001

But Franchise Tax Board send out a letter for taxpayer with Explanation of Change:

- We disallowed your Earned Income Tax Credit because your federal adjusted Gross income exceeds the limit for your number of qualifying children (CODE:AP)

- We disallowed your Young Child Tax Credit because you did not qualify for Earned Income Tax Credit (CODE:HQ)

So what I have to do in this situation?

Thanks.

Pull out the FTB instruction book and see IF the income does exceed CAEITC limits its telling you?  If so, then the program has a bug.

Maybe the unemployment is creating an issue since CA doesnt tax unemployment?  Making CAs AGI much lower than the fed?
