If there is no amount for this line and there is an overall tax due then an override amount may need to be entered on the Extension screen. Partnership return - (ref. #47605)
Why is this diagnostic generating?
California grants an automatic extension and doesn't require the extension form to be filed electronically unless there is a payment due with the extension.
If you don't have an amount due on the extension, this form should be removed.
To remove the form, you must unmark the extension for e-file. To do so, under the California Information section, uncheck E-file California state extension on the screen for your return type:
- Individual: Screen 9
- Partnership: Screen 6
- S-Corporation: Screen 12
- Corporation: Screen 12
- Fiduciary: Screen 14
