new york non resident return

I have a client who has New York state withholdings on his W-2.  This is not New York source income, he does not live in the state, does not maintain an office in the state.  I need to allocate zero income to New York, but when I do that ProSeries is giving me this error - on the New York state return - "Alloc Wks" line 1 - Wages, salaries, etc - column a from federal return $64,500 column b nothing, column c auto filled from column a/federal return, $64,500, column d - i type in zero and the cell goes red and says "allocation worksheet for PY/NR: Wages, salaries, etc Col D New York wages were reported on federal Form W-2 but no wage income has been allocated to New York.  This will cause the efiled return to be rejected by New York state. Any help?

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.
