Reporting various or unknown acquisition dates for dispositions in ProConnect Tax

SOLVEDby IntuitProConnect Tax25Updated July 27, 2021

In ProConnect Tax many date fields allow you to enter a negative date to print Various on tax forms.

To trigger a various date in dispositions

  1. Go to the Input Return tab.
  2. Select Dispositions (Sch D, etc.) from the left menu, then Schedule D/4797/etc.
  3. Enter a negative date (such as -01/01/2001) in the Date Acquired field, or select Details to expand the screen and enter it in Date acquired (negative date=various).

Additional information

  • The IRS doesn't allow the term various on some forms when e-filing, and a critical diagnostic will generate if the return must be paper-filed.
  • Although various prints on the tax form, the negative date you enter is still used to determine whether a transaction is short-term or long-term. If necessary, make an entry in the 1=short-term, 2=long-term [Override] field.
