continuation sheet printing error

Why does a continuation sheet / smart worksheet with additional interest income print when the Sched B already has all interest items listed. It looks like the software is printing a continuation sheet from the Interest Income Smart Worksheet for any interest items over 5. I noticed the same problem on the 8283 form where even though all items are listed on the 8283 form, it still is printing out a continuation sheet for any noncash contributions over 1 on the smart worksheet.

I am experiencing the same problem. I called Tech Support today and spoke to 4 different people (I was on the phone with them for almost an hour and a half). The answer is they have no answer other than "Oh well, try submitting an enhancement request".  I had this issue on both Schedules B and D. This year the program appears to be printing all smart worksheets even though you have instructed the program not to print them (by going to "Global Print Options" then "Print with Return").

People come to Accountants Community for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
