CA Fiduciary e-file extension not converting/transmitting until various, unrelated errors in the return, are cleared. E-filing the CA extension form 3563

E-filing CA Fiduciary extension form 3563 should NOT check to see if there are errors in the actual return.  This is unique to CA.  A Federal return can have many errors/estimates, and proseries still lets you e-file the extension.

Stop making errors/estimates in the CA form 541 stop you from filing a CA extension form 3563.

We go to a lot of work to estimate CA tax liability to come up with an extension amount, then I have to clear all estimates to file extension...this causes us to loose track of what amounts remain to be adjusted later this summer when the return is filed.

The only work around is to have a "clean" 541...clearing all the stuff that came over from Fed, undoing all your work

Just have CA check for errors in the extension when only converting/transmitting the extension

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.
