To generate a short year return, review the steps below for the applicable module:
If I've already e-filed the 2022 tax return in Lacerte 2022, can I e-file a Short Year 2023 return from Lacerte 2022?
No, each year can only e-file one non-amended filing for each tax year. Since the 2022 tax return was e-filed, you would not be able to file the short year 2023 return from Lacerte 2022 as it would be the second return using the 2022 forms.
You will need to either paper file the 2023 return, or wait for the Lacerte 2023 program to be released with final forms, and e-file the 2023 return from Lacerte 2023.
