MN Page 3, Line 26 State Income Tax Includes All Types

Lacerte is including all taxes being deducted on line 11 of the Federal Form 1041 without regard to the type of taxes reported.  The Minnesota instructions (line 26) indicates the following;

State Income Tax Enter the amount of state income tax deducted on the federal return. State income tax deductions are not allowed on the Minnesota return. [M.S. 290.0131, subd. 3]

The Form 1041 does break down the type of taxes that are being added together on the line into different categories.  The program is not taking these categories into consideration.

NY Form IT-204 Line 117C Jump-to-Input Misdirected

When viewing New York Form IT-204, pate 7, line 117C the  jump-to-input (JTI) takes you to the wrong detail screen.  You're taken to Screen 5 where the input landing does not affect this line of the return.

The correct input resides on Screen 23 for passthroughs, since the question asked 'is if the partnership is a partner in another passthrough', and not 'is this partnership owned by another entity'.
