Form 8958, Allocation of Tax Amounts Between Certain Individuals in Community Property States, is required for all federal returns (e-file or paper-file) filing as Married Filing Separately when the taxpayer and/or spouse live in a Community Property State, and suppressing the form will generate a critical e-file diagnostic.
Follow the steps below to suppress Form 8958 for non-community property state residents:
- From the Input Return tab, go to General ⮕ Community Property Income Allocation.
- Delete all amounts entered in this screen.
Form 8958 should be suppressed once all codes and amounts have been deleted.
