prepared printed and efiled return on 4/3/21. Client just got letter adjusting MO AGI and increasing tax. Printed copy shows line 5 $107,315 and line 6 $81,159 (incorrect). Opening the tax return with current updates shows line 5 $107,315 and line 6 $107,315. Worried that I may have more time bombs because of this erroneous calculation. Would like to have affected clients identified so I can be proactive. Would have liked a heads up about the correction when it was made. Would at least like to have an alert to the changed calculations upon entering the return.

What form is that on?  The MO-1040?  Line 6 is the total of two amounts on Line 5?  I hope that was just a one-day glitch that was corrected quickly.

Yes, MO-1040 and line 6 is just a simple math total -- or, for single, the same number as line 5 if calculations are correct.

Wow.  I can see myself making a mistake like that, even though signing returns implies that we have reviewed them for errors.    If you can't trust software to add two numbers, can you trust your calculator?  And eyewitness testimony is always the least reliable.  

For federal returns I try to use the two-year comparison feature to spot anomalies.  But that's not available for most states, right?  

I would look for other joint returns filed that week.
