The 2106 for California is not generating the detail from box 4. Lacerte advised putting detail manually in the note tab but will not line up in that format correctly.

In previous years, Lacerte generated the details of the unreimbursed employee expenses.  I was unable to locate this for California now that it is no longer required on the Federal Form.  I called and spoke to Lacerte twice.  Their suggestion is to manually enter in the notes.  This functionality does not line up or total.  Has anyone found another solution? 




Have you updated? Line 4 says to see STATEMENT #

It is reading the data from Screen 30, Code 10 Other business expenses (Ctrl +E) There is a 2106 with CA only and that goes to Schedule CA, page 3

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.
