Can't create CT-300 and NYC-300, when the C Corporation didn't have no tax for the last 2 years, why?

My client, C Corporation, didn't have any tax liability for the years 2016 and 2017.  Therefore, there was no number to enter for CT-300 and NYC-300, yet, PTO says Critical Diagnostics, saying that I have to enter the second preceding year's amount, etc.  I entered "0" zero, yet, CT-300 and NYC-300 are not calculated and not let me manage the estimated tax payment for MFI.  

Is there anybody who has had the similar experience?  

As a result, CT-3 has "additional" First Installment Estimated tax amount added to the 2018 tax due amount.  

I know that a Corporation that didn't meet the requirement (which is that it has had tax liabilities over $1,000 in the second preceding year) is NOT required to file MFI (CT-300 and NYC-300), but I want to create CT-300 and NYC-300 for the Corporation, in order to avoid one-time big payment on 4/15/2019.

Anybody's resolution suggestion and idea is welcome

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.
