When the following critical diagnostic is generating, follow the steps in this article to resolve.

The total amount of distributions reducing Schedule M-2 accounts does not equal the total distributions shown on Schedule K line 16d and 17c. Verify any Schedule M-2 distribution overrides entered in Screen 32.(ref. #25319) ( in prior years this diagnostic reference number was- ref. #21369)

Follow these steps to remove the override and resolve this diagnostic:

  1. Go to Screen 32, Schedule M-2.
  2. Scroll down to the Accumulated Adjustments Account (Sch. M-2) section 
  3. Remove the amount in, Distributions other than dividends [O] (code 104).
