Why has the Ohio nonresident credit not been fixed?

When preparing a return for Ohio, the program picks up the nonresident ky withholding as a credit for tax paid to other states. rather than the actual tax of zero when it is refunded on a kentucky nonresident return.  An override to the correct tax of zero makes the ohio return not e-fileable.  When multiplied by the number of returns filed incorrectly that would be a huge revenue loss to Ohio.  I saw this was incorrectly filed in this office last year when the preparer let the return default to proseries treatment.

FIX:  enter OH in the nonresident checkbox on the OH return even though they are a resident. A worksheet pops up to  zero out the refunded tax.

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.
