End Ghost spouses (in Homebase "spouse first name" cell)


In the years after a Taxpayer dies (in a married filing joint return) the spouse is moved to the taxpayer slot but the "spouse first name" cell does not change and the taxpayer first name and the spouse first name are the same. Can this be fixed so that the spouse first name cell is erased in the year following a taxpayers death?

Interesting, I have not experienced this.   You're using ProSeries Professional or Basic?

The only reason I notice is because I export the homebase view to prep letters to send to clients in January.
