Screen 11 Interest Income-- Federal Schedule B is correct, but the flow thru to Tennessee Hall tax "nontaxable" portion is understated. Why?

Entry made to Bank Interest income (taxable to Federal & TN). Box was marked "Taxable to TN" which in this case is correct.

Also an entry was made on the line "US Bonds (nontaxable to state)".

Entries were also made under "Adjustments to Federal Taxable Interest"--"Accrued interest"  and also "Amortized Bond Premium".  These both correctly offset the taxable interest income above shown on the Federal Schedule B.

The TN INC 250 "taxable" portion shows correctly the netting of the "taxable" Bank interest offset by the "Adjustments to Federal Taxable Interest". 

However the TN "nontaxable" portion shows a duplication of the "Adjustments to Federal Taxable Interest" again as a "Negative" number. This is netted with the "US Bonds (nontaxable to state)" amount. This results in the TN "nontaxable" portion showing as under-reporting interest income.

Made contact 2/24/19 with Customer Support. They confirmed that this is a software "bug" that will be fixed in a future software update. The Case # xxxxxxxxx for this issue.  They instructed to continue to "work-around" this issue until the "bug" is fixed.

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.
