Were we suppose to make a manual adjustment to the RE taxes on 8829, when SALT exceeded 10K on Sch A?

I saw someone in a FB group asking why ProSeries doesn't make this adjustment on the 8829 automatically...I didnt think that 8829 was subject to the limit, I thought it got first dibs on the RE taxes, then the remainder that flowed to Sch A was subject to the 10K limitation.

I honestly cant think of any of my clients that the situation would apply to, but I'm wondering if this was something I should have paid more attention to.

There is a nifty worksheet for line 11 (see page 3 of the instructions https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/i8829.pdf) Lacerte does not do it either. I think Intuit is hoping IRS doesn't know how to do the worksheet, so we may all get off scott free.

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.
