Oklahoma S-corp forms print as "not available" even though they're available

Anyone with Oklahoma S-corp returns might want to hold off on processing.

- The 512S prints fine, although if your Items to Print includes "State e-file Signature Form," you're going to get two copies. One comes before the OK return, and the other somewhere in the middle, regardless of how your print options are set.

- The BT-190 prints "This form is not available for this release" if you try to print it as part of anything. It prints just fine if you click the "Print Form" button while viewing the form, and print one page at a time. This is an issue both for paper and for PDF.

- The OW-8-ESC (estimated tax vouchers) print "This form is not available for this release" if you try to print it as part of anything. It prints just fine if you click the "Print Form" button while viewing the form, and print one page at a time. This is an issue both for paper and for PDF.

- If you've got Investment Interest Expense in Screen 20 (Sch K income and deducts), there's no way to get both the Federal and OK columns correct on page 2 of the 512S. You used to be able to use the Other Deducts Ctrl+E state column to override OK to the right amount, and the Federal amount wouldn't need overriding. Now both amounts have to be overridden, and there is no way to override Federal.

Answer

Good information. I think every preparer should start informing all of us when they first encounter such stuff with their own common returns and forms.

I will do so for Pro Series and NJ.

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.
