1041-US: Form 4562 is not printing (FAQ)

Alerts and notices


Why is Form 4562 not printing after I've entered date on Screen 4562?


Form 4562 prints only if the form meets the criteria for filing noted in the instructions for the form. You must file this form if the fiduciary claims any of the following:

  • Depreciation for property placed in service in the current tax year
  • Depreciation on a vehicle or other listed property
  • Special depreciation for property subject to the section 168(f)(1) election
  • Amortization of costs that began in the current year

The form prints if any of the above situations are true and depreciation has not been allocated to beneficiaries. If you want to print Form 4562 every time amounts are included on the form, choose Setup > 1041 Fiduciary, click the Tax Return button, select Form 4562 in the list, and click the Always If Data option.
