Supporting statements not transferring

Some supporting statements aren't transferring from the 2017 year. It appears to be only the supporting statements that were created new for 2017. Older ones are showing up OK. Is this a known defect?

Answer

Issue: ProSeries 1040, Schedule F, line 7 Supporting Statements Descriptions not rolling over from 2017 to 2018.

This has been a recurring problem for ProSeries 1040, Schedule F, line 7 Supporting Statements Descriptions.

On the 1040, Schedule F, lines 1a, 1b, 2, 3a, 4a, 6, and 8 the Supporting Statements Descriptions all roll over from one year to the next just fine.  But, 1040, Schedule F, line 7 Supporting Statements Descriptions does not roll over from one year to the next.  The line 7 roll over did work several years ago, but then quit working and has never been fixed.

Can ProSeries reprogram so that 1040, Schedule F, line 7 Supporting Statements Descriptions roll over from one year to the next?

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.
