email for customer support

I spent nearly 2 hours today trying to get this solved with a very kind Proseries customer service employee, however it seems to be a glitch in the program.  I am trying to simply file a SMLLC California tax form.  Therefore, the federal form should not matter.  I fill out all of the data on the federal (1065) as well as the State form (568) and keep coming back to the same problem.  When setting up the one K-1 that is needed to identify the single member i input "DE" under partner entity type.  This supposedly represents a Single Member, but some how the error for the ID No. field still comes up as needing 2 members for the partnership.  The problem is its not a partnership.  If i try to make a dummy partner to resolve the federal form error, then there is an error on the state form   because it is being filed as a "Single member LLC" with 2 members.  My only choice seems to be to file a paper return, and that is not what the client signed for.  If anyone knows more about this or has an answer I would greatly appreciate it, or perhaps it truly is a glitch in the system that needs fixed.  It shouldn't be this difficult to file an SMLLC State form. It is a very common scenerio.  Thanks.

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.
