I have already spoken with tech about the credit. The file was sanitized and sent to Intuit.
The credit comes on the 1040 worksheet and/or Form 1040, by way of the Schedule A, Gifts to Charity. Schedule 1 doesn't have a line for charitable contribution credit.
The 1040 worksheet and Form 1040 shows "total adjustments to income."
Schedule 1 show "adjustments to income."
2 Year Comparison uses "adjustments to income."
"Total" is the keyword here according to Intuit and/or IRS.
The 2 Year Comparison, Adjustments to Income, is pulling from Schedule 1only.
When you have contributions on Schedule A, it carries it to the 1040 Worksheet, Lines 8-11. You are then prompted to enter either $150 or $300 for the charitable contribution credit.
I understand the IRS has the final say, but I would like to see the 2 Year Comparison to reflect total adjustments to income. The comparison is a good tool to use and actually the Difference column doesn't reflect true in comparison of 2 years for the Adjustments to Income line.
I don't feel like I should have to "override" this field on the 2 Year Comparison W
