How to resolve Lacerte diagnostic ref. 27220

SOLVEDby Intuit2Updated July 13, 2022

Diagnostic ref. #27220 pops up when an override is entered for amounts used to compute Form 5227, Part V-A, Charitable Remainder Annuity Trust (CRAT) Information. Review Part V-A for proper footing of amounts.

How to resolve the diagnostic

To remove the diagnostic, go to Screen 8 and remove the input in Amount [O]. The amount field in this screen is technically an override and will generate the diagnostic.

How does Lacerte compute the amount to be distributed to recipients on Form 5227, line 61b?

Lacerte computes the amount by multiplying the percentage entered in screen 8 and the entry in Initial fair market value placed in trust in Form 5227 screen 48.1.
