Critical Error QOF and Form 8949.

Hello.  Taxpayer files a Form 1041 and invests in several partnerships.  We received two 1231 gains from K1s and met all qualifications to reinvest the money in QO Funds to defer the gain.  Everything entered on Screen 17.1 as indicated above.  The transaction did not come from a Form 8949, but from line 10 of Form K-1s.   If we do not put proceeds $1.00 in col d, then the form 8949 does not print.  

We are receiving two critical diagnostics on this (see attached) not allowing us to efile.   I believe this requires programming.

Please advise.

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.
