S Corp initial return

I have put in the incorporation date of 3-02-2020.  I also put the S election date of 3-02-2020.  It comes back with the following:

Effective date of S Election entered is later than the beg of the tax year.

 

If I change the S election date to 1-01-2020, it says S election date cannot be before date of incorporation.  All other returns I've done through the years had no trouble with these dates.

I had a similar situation.  The errors cleared after checking the box for Short Year on the Info Worksheet and entering the appropriate dates there as well.
