MFA required for electronic filing

Effective May 3rd, the 2017 version of UltraTax CS requires multi-factor authentication (MFA) to access the electronic filing transmission feature in CS Connect.

Thomson Reuters is committed to proactively evolving our security features to help you protect your firm and your clients' data. For more information about multi-factor authentication, see Multi-factor authentication overview.

Overview

Use this screen to enter 1099-INT, 1099-OID, 1099-DIV, and 1099-B information reported on a consolidated broker statement. Data entered on this screen is combined with data entered elsewhere and reported on Schedule B, Schedule D, Form 1116, Form 8949 and Form 6781.

Notes
  • Do not enter information on this screen that has been entered elsewhere.
  • Use Screens B&D and 6781 to enter information based upon source documents instead of broker basis
  • To force Schedule B to print if it has data and whether or not it is required, choose Setup > 1040 Individual and click the Tax Return button in the Collation group box. Near the top of the dialog, click the Pages that can be forced to print option in the Focus group box. Choose the collation (Government, Client, or Preparer) to modify, choose Schedule B, and then mark the Always if data option. Click OK.

Source data entry

The Source Data Entry utility enables you to enter data on facsimile versions of forms your clients submit for the preparation of their tax returns. Once the facsimile forms are completed, you can export the data to the application and transfer it into your client data files via the data sharing feature. For more information including a list of available facsimiles, see Source Data Entry overview.

General Information

Enter any separately reported investment management/advisory fees from the consolidated broker statement in this field. The application treats an entry in this field as an investment expense and will report the amount on Schedule A, line 23 and Form 4952, line 5 as applicable.

Interest, Dividend

Enter interest income information (including foreign amounts) from Forms 1099-INT and 1099-OID to complete Part I of Schedule B. Use the statement dialog provided to enter multiple payers and codes to classify the interest income. If the paid amount is less than $1,500 and no special codes are needed, enter the amount directly in Screen Broker. The information that follows describes how information entered in the attached statement dialog affects the calculation of the client's federal and state tax returns.

  • F/S: Use this field only if you are preparing multiple-state tax returns. For multiple-state returns, make duplicate line entries of an interest item for each state as necessary, with a different postal code for each entry. In the F/S field, enter S for all but one of your duplicate line entries. The federal application disregards entries coded S.

    1040 Massachusetts and Pennsylvania users only: When you enter multiple lines of data for a payer, you must enter code S in the F/S field on the line with the postal code of the other state. Do not enter code S on the line that contains postal code MA or PA.

  • Type Code: Enter a code to identify interest income that is an adjustment to an interest amount (such as nominee or accrued interest) or Series EE or I U.S. government bond interest eligible for the Form 8815 exclusion. The type code applies only to taxable interest entered in the Interest Income field.

Taxable Interest:

Leave the Type Code field blank for an interest item that is taxable on the federal 1040 return.

  • State processing: For interest items with the Type Code field blank, enter a percentage in the US Ob % field to indicate the portion, if any, that is attributable to U.S. government obligations (nontaxable to states).
  • Early W/D Penalty: enter the early withdrawal penalty amount reported on Form 1099-INT. This amount will transfer to Form 1040, Page 1, line 30.
  • Inv Exp: Enter the investment expenses reported on Form 1099-INT. This amount will transfer to Schedule A, line 23.
  • Fed/State W/H: Enter withholding amounts reported on Form 1099-INT. You may enter both federal and state withholding in this screen. Federal withholding amounts entered here will transfer to Form 1040, Page 2, line 64. State withholding amounts will transfer to Schedule A, line 5, and also the applicable line of the taxpayer's state return.

    Michigan Note: If state withholding is entered with a Michigan postal code, the data will transfer to the statement dialog attached to the Form 1099 Miscellaneous, interest, and dividend information field in Screen MIGen in 1040-MI. The taxpayer's employer identification number must be entered in the EIN field in that statement dialog for purposes of Michigan Schedule W.

Municipal and Other Tax-Exempt Interest:

Enter total tax-exempt interest (including interest income attributable to private activity bonds issued after 8/7/86) in the Tax Exempt field in the statement dialog. Items entered in this field transfer to the Tax-exempt interest line on Form 1040, Page 1. If a portion of the tax-exempt income is attributable to private activity bonds issued after 8/7/86, you must also enter that portion in the AMT Int Income (PAB) field in the statement dialog. Amounts entered in this field will be used for Form 6251, Alternative Minimum Tax, calculations and will transfer to the appropriate line on Form 6251.

Note: The IRS does not require tax-exempt interest to be reported separately on Schedule B, however the application provides an option to do so. Choose Setup > 1040 Individual, click the Other Return Options button, click the Return Presentation tab, and in the Other group box, mark the Print tax-exempt interest and dividends on Schedule B checkbox.

  • State processing: Enter any amount or percentage in the In-State Muni $ or % field to indicate the portion of the amount entered in the Tax Exempt field, if any, that is nontaxable to the integrated state.

Adjustment Amounts:

Enter code 3, 4, 5, or 6 for nominee, accrued, OID, or ABP adjustment items. If an item of interest income requires an adjustment, enter the total amount received on one line, then enter the adjustment amount on a separate line with a type code of 3, 4, 5, or 6. Enter the adjustment as a positive amount when using one of these codes. For type codes 3 through 6, the application calculates a subtotal for each code and subtracts the adjustment amounts on Schedule B.

Series EE or I Bond Interest:

Enter code 7 if the item is a Series EE or I bond interest, eligible for the Form 8815 exclusion. If you enter type code 7, the US Ob $ or % field automatically defaults to 100.000 percent.

Note: To qualify for the exclusion, Series EE or I bonds must have been issued after 1989 in the taxpayers name (or jointly if married) and the taxpayer must have been 24 years old or older before the bonds were issued.

  • Payer: Enter the payer name. A custom fieldview is available in this field.
  • Interest Income: Enter taxable interest income amounts and adjustments to interest amounts from Forms 1099-INT and 1099-OID or similar statements to complete Part I of Schedule B. Do not enter tax-exempt interest in this field.
  • Tax Exempt: Enter total tax-exempt interest amounts (including interest income attributable to private activity bonds issued after 8/7/86). This amount may be reported on Form 1099-INT, box 8. Do not enter tax- exempt interest in the Interest Income field.
  • AMT Int Income (PAB): Enter interest income attributable to private activity bonds issued after 8/7/86. This amount may be reported on Form 1099-INT, box 9. Amounts entered in this field are used for Form 6251 calculations. You must also enter the amount in the Tax Exempt field for Schedule B purposes.
  • State W/H: Enter withholding amounts reported on Form 1099-DIV. State withholding amounts entered here transfer to Schedule A, line 5.
  • US Ob $ or %: For state processing, enter a percentage in this field if any portion of the taxable interest income is attributable to U.S. government obligations (nontaxable to the state). For example, enter 12.500 in this field if the item is 12.50 percent U.S. government interest; enter 25 in this field if $25 of interest is U.S. Government interest. Note that the US Ob $ or % field is applicable only for interest items entered in the Interest Income field. The application disregards a US Ob $ or % entry for items entered in the Tax Exempt and AMT Int Inc (PAB) fields.
  • In-State Muni $ or %: For state processing, enter either an amount or a percentage in this field to indicate the portion of the municipal or other tax-exempt interest income (items entered in the Tax Exempt field) that is nontaxable to the integrated state. For example, enter 8.000 in this field if the item is 8.0 percent attributable to municipal obligations of the integrated state; enter 50 in this field if $50 of the tax exempt interest is attributable to municipal obligations of the integrated state. Note that the In-State Muni $ or % field is applicable only for interest items entered in the Tax Exempt field. The application disregards an In-State Muni $ or % entry for items entered in the Interest Income and AMT Int Inc (PAB) fields.
  • In-State Source %: This field is applicable only to part-year resident and nonresident state returns. In-State Source % defaults to 100 percent for part-year resident state returns if the part-year resident state is entered in the State field. However, In-State Source % defaults to zero percent for all nonresident state returns and part-year resident state returns if the State field is blank or does not match the part-year resident state being processed.
  • State: Enter a state postal code unless you are processing one resident state return or no state return. For a single resident state return, a blank State field will allow the federal amounts to transfer to the state return. If this field is blank, the related amount will not transfer to any part-year resident and/or nonresident integrated state returns.

    When processing two or more state returns, make duplicate line entries for those interest items where you must enter different information for each state. For example, a different In-State Muni % or In-State Source % may be required for each state. Enter a postal code to direct each line entry to a particular state return. When duplicate line entries are used, enter S in the F/S field for all but one of your duplicate entries, so that the federal application disregards the "state only" entries. The state applications disregard entries with F in the F/S field as well as any entries with S in the F/S field that also have an out-of-state postal code.

    Note: When processing a nonresident state return with a resident return, the duplicate line entry is not always necessary. Depending on how the entry is sourced, do one of the following:

    • If the entry is sourced to the nonresident state, enter information for the nonresident State, the In-State Source %, and if applicable, the US Ob $ or % and/or In-State Muni $ or %. If the entry also has an In-State Muni $ or % attributable to the resident state, a duplicate line entry is necessary; enter S in the F/S field and enter the resident state in the State field.
    • If the entry is sourced to the resident state, only a single entry is needed. Leave the F/S field blank. You may enter the resident state in the State field or leave it blank. If applicable, also enter the US Ob $ or % and/or In-State Muni $ or % for the resident state.

    See State fields for more information.

  • State Use: The codes that are available in this field are specific to the state postal code entered in the State field. If state use codes are not applicable to the entered state, state use codes will not be available in most instances (see the following note for a description of exceptions). Enter a code as applicable for processing the 1040 state return. The interest income state use codes and applicable states are listed in the table that follows.

    Note: In the following table, states marked with an asterisk (*) denote state use codes that are available when that state's return is attached to the open client, even when that particular state postal code is not entered in the corresponding State field.

Foreign Interest Income:

Enter data in the Interest Income statement if the client received foreign interest income and paid foreign tax on that income. The application treats all income items indicated as foreign in this statement as foreign-source for Form 1116 purposes.

If you enter foreign data in this statement, a Screen 1116 automatically completes with all information necessary to calculate Form 1116. You can edit or add information to Screen 1116.

Notes

  • When processing married filing joint returns that use the Filing Status Optimization utility, use this statement to make entries only if you do not need to enter further information in Screen 1116.
  • If using multi-line data entry, select Foreign Columns from the Column menu to display all applicable foreign data entry. You can also use the globe Show/hide foreign columns button on the toolbar to show or hide the foreign columns.

The following table lists the fields in Screen 1116 that complete automatically, and the subsequent treatment of the information on Form 1116.

Enter interest income information from Forms 1099-INT, 1099-OID, or similar statements that also include foreign taxes paid. The information you enter here completes Part 1 of Schedule B as well as Form 1116. The information that follows describes how information entered in the attached statement affects the calculation of the client's federal and state tax returns.

  • Foreign Amt (If different): Use this field only when the amount of foreign source income used to calculate the foreign tax credit is different from the amount entered in the Interest Income field on the same line. When this field is blank and taxes paid are entered in the Foreign Tax Paid field, the application will use the amount entered in the Interest Income field as foreign source income for Form 1116 purposes.
  • Foreign Tax paid: Enter the amount of foreign taxes paid on foreign interest income. The application will use the amount entered here to calculate Form 1116.
  • X if Foreign: The application will mark this field automatically when you enter an amount in the Foreign Amt (If different) field or in the Foreign Tax Paid field. When this field is marked, the amount is considered to be foreign and will be transferred to Form 1116 to be included in the calculation of the foreign tax credit. This indicator may also be manually added or removed.
  • FATCA: Enter X if the FATCA checkbox is marked in the source document, indicating that the payer has satisfied its FATCA filing requirement via issuance of the source document. When you mark this field, an informational diagnostic reminds you that the taxpayer may also have a separate FATCA requirement to file Form 8938 and/or FINCEN Form 114. Review Form 8938 and/or FinCEN Form 114 filing instructions to determine if any filing requirements apply.
  • Do Not Proforma: Enter X in this field to delete the item on next year's proforma.

Enter dividend income information (including foreign amounts) from Form 1099-DIV to complete Part II of Schedule B. Use the statement dialog provided to enter multiple payers and codes to clarify the dividend income. If the paid amount is less than $1,500 and no special codes are needed, enter the amounts directly in Screen Broker. The information that follows describes the fields that appear in the attached statement dialog:

  • F/S: Use this field only if you are preparing multiple-state tax returns. For multiple-state returns, make duplicate line entries of a dividend item for each state as necessary, with a different postal code for each entry. In the F/S field, enter S for all but one of your duplicate line entries. The federal application disregards entries coded S.

    1040 Massachusetts and Pennsylvania users only: When you enter multiple lines of data for a payer, you must enter code S in the F/S field on the line with the postal code of the other state. Do not enter code S on the line that contains postal code MA or PA.

  • Type Code: Enter a code to indicate that the income item is a nominee adjustment amount.

Taxable Dividends:

Leave the Type Code field blank for a dividend item that is taxable on the federal 1040 return.

  • State processing: For dividend items with the Type Code field blank, enter an amount or percentage in the US Ob $ or % field to indicate the portion, if any, that is attributable to U.S. government obligations (nontaxable to the state).

Municipal and Other Tax-Exempt Dividends:

Enter total tax-exempt dividends (including dividend income attributable to private activity bonds issued after 8/7/86) in the Tax Exempt Amount field in the statement dialog. Items entered in this field transfer to the Tax-exempt interest line on Form 1040, Page 1. If a portion of the tax-exempt income is attributable to private activity bonds issued after 8/7/86, you must also enter that portion in the AMT Exempt Div (PAB) field in the statement dialog. Amounts entered in these fields are used only for Form 6251, Alternative Minimum Tax, calculations.

Note: The IRS does not require tax-exempt interest to be reported separately on Schedule B, however there is an option to do so. Choose Setup > 1040 Individual, click the Other Return Options button, click the Return Presentation tab, and mark the Print tax-exempt interest and dividends on Schedule B checkbox.

  • State processing: Enter an amount or percentage in the In-State Muni $ or % field to indicate the portion of the amount entered in the Tax Exempt Amount field, if any, that is nontaxable to the integrated state.

Nominee Amounts:

If an item of dividend income requires a nominee adjustment, enter the total amount received on one line, then enter the nominee amount on a separate line with a type code of 3. Enter the nominee adjustment as a positive amount. The application calculates a subtotal of items with type code 3 and subtracts the nominee amount on Schedule B.

  • Payer: Enter the payer's name. A custom fieldview is available in this field.
  • Ordinary Dividend: Enter ordinary dividend amounts from Form 1099-DIV. Do not enter tax-exempt dividends in this field.

  • 1202 Excl Code: If the taxpayer qualifies for the exclusion, enter the code that represents the appropriate exclusion or use the fieldview to make your selection.

    Notes:

    • Gain on the exchange of qualified small business stock acquired after December 21, 2000, in a qualified business entity (within an empowerment zone) and held more than five years is subject to a 60 percent exclusion.
    • Gain on the exchange of qualified small business stock acquired after February 17, 2009, and on or before September 27, 2010 in a qualified business entity held more than five years is subject to a 75 percent exclusion.
    • Gain on the exchange of qualified small business stock acquired after September 27, 2010, and before January 1, 2014 in a qualified business entity held more than five years is subject to a 100 percent exclusion.
  • 28% Cap Gain: Enter 28-percent capital gain distribution amounts from Form 1099-DIV or similar statements.
  • Tax Exempt Amount: Enter total tax-exempt dividend amounts (including dividend income attributable to private activity bonds issued after 8/7/86). This amount may be reported on Form 1099-DIV, box 10. Do not enter tax-exempt dividends in the Ordinary Dividend or Qualified Dividend fields.
  • AMT Exempt Div (PAB): Enter dividend income attributable to private activity bonds issued after 8/7/86. This amount may be reported on Form 1099-DIV, box 11. Amounts entered in this field are used for Form 6251 calculations. You must also enter the amount in the Tax Exempt Amount field for Schedule B purposes.
  • Inv Exp: Enter the investment expenses reported on Form 1099-DIV. This amount transfers to Schedule A, line 23.
  • Fed W/H: Enter withholding amounts reported on Form 1099-DIV. Federal withholding amounts entered here transfer to Form 1040, Page 2, line 64.
  • State W/H: Enter withholding amounts reported on Form 1099-DIV. State withholding amounts entered here transfer to Schedule A, line 5.
  • US Ob $ or %: For state processing, enter either an amount or a percentage in this field if any portion of the dividend income is attributable to U.S. government obligations (nontaxable to the state). For example, enter 12.500 in this field if the item is 12.50 percent attributable to U.S. government obligations; enter 25 in this field if $25 of interest is U.S. Government interest. Note that the US Ob $ or % field is applicable only for dividend items entered in the Ordinary Dividend field. The application  disregards a US Ob $ or % entry for items entered in the Tax Exempt Amount and AMT Exempt Div (PAB) fields.
  • In-State Muni $ or %: For state processing, enter either an amount or a percentage in this field to indicate the portion of the municipal or other tax-exempt dividend income (items entered in the Tax Exempt Amount field) that is nontaxable to the integrated state. For example, enter 8.000 in this field if the item is 8.0 percent attributable to municipal obligations of the integrated state; enter 50 in this field if $50 of the tax exempt interest is attributable to municipal obligations of the integrated state. Note that the In-State Muni $ or % field is applicable only for dividend items entered in the Tax Exempt Amount field. The application disregards an In-State Muni $ or % entry for items entered in the Ordinary Dividend and AMT Exempt Div (PAB) fields.

    Minnesota Note: If less than 95 percent of the federal tax-exempt interest dividend from a mutual fund came from bonds issued by Minnesota, all of the federal tax-exempt interest dividend from that fund is taxable to Minnesota. 1040 -MN automatically disregards an In-State Muni % entry of less than 95 percent when using a Minnesota postal code.

  • In-State Source %: This field is applicable only to part-year resident and nonresident state returns. In-State Source % defaults to 100 percent for part-year resident state returns if the part-year resident state is entered in the State field. However, In-State Source % defaults to zero percent for all nonresident state returns and part-year state returns if the State field is blank or does not match the part-year resident state being processed.
  • State: Enter a state postal code unless you are processing one resident state return or no state return. For a single resident state return, a blank State field will allow the federal amounts to transfer to the state return. If this field is blank, the related amount will not transfer to any part-year resident and/or nonresident integrated state returns.

    When processing two or more state returns, make duplicate line entries for those dividend items for which different information must be entered for each state. For example, a different In-State Muni % or In-State Source % may be required for each state. Enter a postal code to direct each line entry to a particular state return. When duplicate line entries are used, enter S in the F/S field for all but one of your duplicate entries, so that the federal application disregards the "state only" entries.

    Note: When processing a nonresident state return with a resident return, the duplicate line entry is not always necessary. Depending on how the entry is sourced, do one of the following:

    • If the entry is sourced to the nonresident state, enter information for the nonresident state in the State, In-State Source %, and, if applicable, US Ob $ or % and/or In-State Muni $ or % fields. If the entry also has an In-State Muni % attributable to the resident state, a duplicate line entry is necessary; enter S in the F/S field and enter the resident state in the State field.
    • If the entry is sourced to the resident state, only a single entry is needed. Leave the F/S field blank. The State may be entered as the resident state or it may be left blank. If applicable, also enter the US Ob $ or % and/or In-State Muni $ or % for the resident state.

    See State fields for more information.

  • State Use: The codes that are available in this field are specific to the state postal code entered in the State field. If state use codes are not applicable to the entered state, state use codes will not be available in most instances (see the following note for a description of exceptions). Enter a code as applicable for processing the 1040 state return. The dividend income state use codes and applicable states are listed in the table that follows.

    Note: In the following table, states marked with brackets ([ ]) denote state use codes that are available when that state's return is attached to the open client, even when that particular state postal code is not entered in the corresponding State field.

The information entered here completes Part II of Schedule B as well as Form 1116. The information that follows describes how information entered in the attached statement affects the calculation of the client's federal and state tax returns.

  • Foreign Ord Div: Use this field only when the amount of foreign source income used to calculate the foreign tax credit is different from the amount entered in the Ordinary Dividend field on the same line. When this field is blank and taxes paid are entered in the Foreign Tax Paid field, the application will use the amount entered in the Ordinary Dividend field as foreign source income for Form 1116 purposes.
  • Foreign Qual Div: Use this field only when the amount of foreign source income used to calculate the foreign tax credit is different from the amount entered in the Qualified Dividend field on the same line. When this field is blank and taxes paid are entered in the Foreign Tax Paid field, the application will use the amount entered in the Qualified Dividend field as foreign source income for Form 1116 purposes.
  • Foreign Cap Gain: Use this field only when the amount of foreign source income used to calculate the foreign tax credit is different from the amount entered in the Total Cap Gain (total capital gains) field on the same line. When this field is blank and taxes paid are entered in the Foreign Tax Paid field, the application will use the amount entered in the Total Cap Gain (total capital gains) field as foreign source income for Form 1116 purposes.
  • Foreign Tax Paid: Enter the amount of foreign taxes paid on foreign dividend income. The application will use the amount entered here to calculate Form 1116.
  • X if Foreign: The application marks this field automatically when an amount is entered in the Foreign Ord Div, Foreign Qual Div, Foreign Cap Gain, or Foreign Tax Paid field. When this field is marked, the amount is considered to be foreign and will be transferred to Form 1116 to be included in the calculation of the foreign tax credit. This indicator may also be manually added or removed.
  • FATCA: Enter X if the FATCA checkbox is marked in the source document, indicating that the payer has satisfied its FATCA filing requirement via issuance of the source document. When you mark this field, an informational diagnostic reminds you that the taxpayer may also have a separate FATCA requirement to file Form 8938 and/or FINCEN Form 114. Review Form 8938 and/or FinCEN Form 114 filing instructions to determine if any filing requirements apply.

If the same payer name appears on more than one unit of Screen Broker, mark the Include last four digits of account number in payer name on Schedule B field, and the payer description will include the last four digits entered in the Account number field at the top of the screen.

Use the attached statement dialog to record the details of nondividend and liquidating distributions reported on Form 1099-DIV. The amounts entered here are not used in the calculation of the return, but will print with the Client Carryforward Memos and Checklists worksheet. The entries will also proforma to the following year for tracking purposes. If it is determined that the distribution amount constitutes a fully or partially taxable event, use the Broker and barter exchange transactions - Proceeds statement dialog in Screen Broker to record the capital gain/loss information. For more information on when a nondividend or liquidating distribution may be taxable, see IRS Publication 550, "Investment Income and Expenses."

Enter X in this field if the foreign income (interest and dividends) and foreign taxes entered above were from a mutual fund or other regulated investment company (RIC). When this field is marked, "RIC" prints on Form 1116, Page 1, line g. Regulated investment income (RIC) does not need to be reported on a country by country basis.

Note: This field will be inactive if data is present in the Foreign country or possession code/name fields.

Information you enter in this field reports on Form 1116. If the related income was passed through from a mutual fund or other regulated investment company (RIC), the income does not need to be reported on a country-by-country basis. To indicate this, leave these fields blank and mark the Foreign income / taxes from a mutual fund or other regulated investment company (RIC) field above.

Note: These fields will be inactive if the Foreign income/taxes from a mutual fund or other regulated investment company (RIC) field is marked.

Sales Transactions

Some of the fields within the attached statement dialog are described as follows:

  • 8949 Box: This field is used to determine which unit of Form 8949 will report the transaction or if the transaction is reported directly on Schedule D.

    Notes

    • The 8949 Box code, in conjunction with the Date Acq'd, Date Sold, and Force fields, determines the page on which the transaction will be reported on Form 8949. Boxes A, B, and C are reported on Form 8949, page 1, as short-term transactions. Boxes D, E, and F are reported on Form 8949, page 2, as long-term transactions.
    • The application defaults to 3, Box C treatment when this field is blank. To change the default behavior for all clients, choose Setup > 1040 Individual > Other Return Options button. Click the Return Presentation tab and make your selection in the Default for Screen B&D, Schedule for detail, Form 8949 transactions drop-down list.
    • Code 4 should only be used for transactions that are reported on Form 1099-B (or substitute) that indicates basis was reported to the IRS and does not report a disallowed wash sale loss in box 5.
    • The application defaults to Form 8949 reporting and produces a critical diagnostic when a transaction has an 8949 Box code 4 and any of the following are true:
      • 1099B Errors has data
      • Type contains C for Collectible
      • Adj to G/L has data
    • Code 4 transactions will be combined and the total reported directly on Schedule D lines 1a or 8a depending on the holding period. The IRS does not require detail to be provided for items reported on lines 1a or 8a. Worksheets for lines 1a and 8a print to help you track each transaction. By default, the worksheets print when two or more transactions exist. To change the default amount, enter the desired amount in the Minimum number of transactions to print Sch D, Line 1a/8a worksheets field located in Setup > 1040 Individual > Other Return Options > Return Presentation tab.
  • 1099B Errors: This field is used to identify 1099B errors that were reported to the IRS.
    Code Description Form 8949 Adj Code
    1 1099-B Box 1c Type of gain or loss is incorrect T
    2 1099-B Box 3 Cost or other basis is incorrect B
    3 1099-B Box 1c and 3 are incorrect B; T

    Notes

    • When Code 1 is selected and no other adjustment is applied to the transaction, a "0" (zero) will print in the Form 8949 (g) Amount of adjustment column.
    • Code 4 should not be used in the 8949 Box field when a code is entered in the 1099B Errors field.
    • It is not necessary to enter B or T in either Adj Code column. The applicable adjustment code automatically prints in the Form 8949 (f) Code(s) from instructions column. Use the Adj to Gain (Loss) and Adj Code columns to report any other adjustments that may apply to the transaction. See the Adj Code fieldview for a full list of codes in accordance with the Form 8949 instructions. When more than one adjustment code applies, the codes print in alphabetical order without spaces or commas. 
  • Type: Use this field to indicate the type of capital asset for which you are entering information. Data entry in this field will automatically print Form 8949 adjustment codes C, S, and Q where applicable as noted below. The codes you can enter in this field are listed in the table that follows and in the fieldview.

    Code Result
    B

    Business

    Gain or loss is included in Schedule D, the NOL Worksheet as business capital gain or loss, in the income used to limit section 179 expense, and gain or loss is reported on Form 8582.

    C

    Collectible

    Gain or loss is included in Form 8949, Form 4952, and in the NOL Worksheet as nonbusiness capital gain or loss. Gain or loss is also included in the 28% Rate Capital Gain Tax Worksheet.

    Notes

    • Adjustment code "C" will print in the Form 8949 Column (f) Codes from instructions. If there is no amount entered in the Adj to G/L field, a 0 (zero) will print in Column (g) Amount of Adjustment.
    • Items coded "C" will be taxed at 28% capital gains rates. Therefore, do not combine non-collectible sales with collectible sales when reporting multiple transactions on a single row.
    • The IRS does not allow collectibles to be reported directly on Schedule D, so code 4 should not be used in the 8949 Box field when code C = Collectible is selected in the Type field.
    M

    Money market (floating NAV)

    Use type M to report capital gain/loss determined under the net asset value method (NAV) with respect to shares in a floating-NAV money market fund.

    Notes

    • Type M items will always be reported on Form 8949 Part I (short- term) with Box C checked, even if you enter long-term dates.
    • Only the Form 8949 description and gain/loss column will be completed, all other columns will remain blank.
    • "(NAV)" appends to the description.
    N

    Nonbusiness

    Gain or loss is included in Form 8949 and in the NOL Worksheet as nonbusiness capital gain or loss.

    S

    Section 1244 stock

    Section 1244 losses transfer to Form 4797, Part II. Section 1244 gains are reported on Form 8949.

    Notes

    • Adjustment code "S" will print in the Form 8949 Column (f) Codes from instructions when the transaction is a loss. Section 1244 losses will be reported on Form 8949 with an amount equal to the ordinary gain reported on Form 4797.
    • Items coded "S" will be treated as 100% Section 1244 gains on Form 4797. Therefore, do not combine non-Section 1244 transactions with Section 1244 sales when reporting multiple transactions on a single row.
    V

    1202 gain 100% excludable

    Section 1202 provides for an exclusion of 100 percent of the gain on the sale or exchange of qualified small business stock. The section 1202 exclusion applies only to qualified small business stock issued after September 21, 2010, and before January 1, 2014 which was held for more than five years. Enter the amount before exclusion. There is no taxable gain for this exclusion, so these transactions do not affect the 28% Rate Capital Gain Tax Worksheet, Form 4952, or the nonbusiness capital gain in the NOL worksheet.

    Notes

    • When there is a Sales Price and Cost/Basis entered with a "V" in the Type column, the Adj to G/L updates with the exclusion amount.
    • Adjustment code "Q" will print in the Form 8949 Column (f) Codes from instructions.
    • Do not combine non-Section 1202 sales with other gains subject when reporting multiple transactions on a single row.
    X

    1202 gain 50% excludable

    Section 1202 provides for an exclusion of 50 percent of the gain on the sale or exchange of qualified small business stock.

The amount after exclusion displays in the 28% Rate Capital Gain Tax Worksheet, on Form 4952, and as nonbusiness capital gain in the NOL Worksheet.

    Notes

    • When there is a Sales Price and Cost/Basis entered with an "X" in the Type Column, the Adj to G/L updates with the exclusion amount.
    • Adjustment code "Q" will print in the Form 8949 Column (f) Codes from instructions.
    • Items coded "X" will be treated as Section 1202 gain subject to 50% exclusion with the taxable amount subject to the 28% capital gains rates and the AMT 7% preference. Therefore, do not combine non-Section 1202 sales with Section 1202 gains subject to 50% exclusion when reporting multiple transactions on a single row.
    Y

    1202 gain 75% excludable

    Section 1202 provides for an exclusion of 75 percent of the gain on the sale or exchange of qualified small business stock. The section 1202 exclusion applies only to qualified small business stock acquired after February 17, 2009, and on or before September 27, 2010, in a qualified business entity and held for more than five years. Enter the amount before exclusion. The amount after exclusion displays in the 28% Rate Capital Gain Tax Worksheet, on Form 4952, and as nonbusiness capital gain in the NOL Worksheet.

    Notes

    • When there is a Sales Price and Cost/Basis entered with a "Y" in the Type column, the Adj to G/L updates with the exclusion amount.
    • Adjustment code "Q" will print in the Form 8949 Column (f) Codes from instructions.
    • Items coded "Y" will be treated as Section 1202 gain subject to 75% exclusion with the taxable amount subject to the 28% capital gains rates and the AMT 7% preference. Therefore, do not combine non-Section 1202 sales with Section 1202 gains subject to 75% exclusion when reporting multiple transactions on a single row.
    Z

    1202 gain 60% excludable

    Section 1202 provides for an exclusion of 60 percent of the gain on the sale or exchange of qualified small business stock. The section 1202 exclusion applies only to qualified small business stock acquired after December 21, 2000, in a qualified business entity (within an empowerment zone) and held for more than five years. Enter the amount before exclusion. The amount after exclusion displays in the 28% Rate Capital Gain Tax Worksheet, on Form 4952, and as nonbusiness capital gain in the NOL Worksheet.

    Notes

    • When there is a Sale Price and Cost/Basis entered with an "Y" in the Type column, the Adj to G/L updates with the exclusion amount.

    • Adjustment code "Q" will print in the Form 8949 Column (f) Codes from instructions.
    • Items coded "Z" will be treated as Section 1202 gain subject to 60% exclusion with the taxable amount subject to the 28% capital gains rates and the AMT 7% preference. Therefore, do not combine non-Section 1202 sales with Section 1202 gains subject to 60% exclusion when reporting multiple transactions on a single row.
  • Quantity Sold /Stock/Other Symbol / Desc: Use the Quantity Sold, Stock/Other Symbol, and Desc fields to describe the transaction. The fields will be combined into one field on the 8949. Note that "sh" will print after the Quantity Sold, as in the example listed on the Form 8949 (i.e. 100 sh. XYZ Co.). Use any combination of fields to enter the transaction description. For example, use only the Quantity Sold and Stock/Other Symbol fields or simply use the Desc field.
  • Date Acq'd / Date Sold: Enter acquired and sold dates in MM/DD/YY format. A zero (0) may be entered in these fields if applicable. The following text is also available to print in the date fields on the form:
    • VARIOUS - Enter V
    • INHERIT - Enter I
    • WORTHLSS - Enter W

    Note: To report worthless securities on Form 8949, enter W in the Date Sold field and complete the Cost/Basis field. Form 8949 will print WORTHLSS in the Date Sold field and report the basis as a loss in column f. The application will default to short-term treatment when the Date Sold field is WORTHLSS and the Date acquired field contains a date in the same tax year. You may change the holding period to long-term by using the Force field.

  • 1=S, 2=L, 3=28%: This field represents the holding period calculated from the dates entered in the Date Acq'd and Date Sold fields. When the Force field is blank, the data in this field helps to determine where to report the gain or loss on Schedule D. Data in this field cannot be modified. Use the Force field to modify the calculated holding period.

    Note: The application will default to a short-term holding period if it cannot be calculated using the Date Acq'd and Date Sold fields (if, for example, a date field contains "Various").

  • Force: The application determines long-term or short-term status of an asset based on the dates you enter in the Date Acq'd and Date Sold fields. For assets coded X or Z for section 1202 gain subject to the 50- and 60-percent exclusion, and for assets coded C for Collectibles, the application ignores the force code and date fields and uses the 28-percent rate. To change the status of an asset, enter 1 for short-term, 2 for long-term, or 3 for 28% rate in the Force field.

    Note: The data in this field helps to determine where to report the gain or loss on Schedule D and ignore the calculated data in the 1=S, 2=L, 3=28% field. Entering data in the Force field will not change the calculated holding period in the 1=S, 2=L, 3=28% field. When data is entered in the Force field, the data in the 1=S, 2=L, 3=28% field is for informational purposes only.

  • Adj to G/L: Use this field to adjust the amounts reported to the IRS on a 1099-B, 1099-S (or substitute statement) is incorrect, to exclude or postpone a capital gain, report a disallowed loss, etc.

    Notes

    • 8949 Box code 4 (report directly on Schedule D) is not a valid selection when there is an amount entered in the Adj to G/L field.
    • An Adj Code must be entered for every Adj G/L amount.
    • The Gain-Loss column will include the Adj to G/L column to arrive at the taxable gain/-loss amount. Review of the Gain-Loss column prior to entering the adjustment may help to determine the amount and type (positive or negative) of adjustment needed to get to the correct taxable gain/loss
    • Adj to G/L will be automatically updated with the excluded gain for items with a Type = X for 1202 gain 50 percent excludable or Z for 1202 gain 60 percent gain excludable A.
  • Adj Code/Adj Code 2: Use these fields to enter the applicable code for the adjustment amount entered in the Adj to G/L field. All adjustment amounts reported on the form are required to have an adjustment code. Note the following 8949 adjustment codes are not available in this view as they are automatically printed on the form via other data entry. Also, note that there are two Adj Code columns to aid in reporting multiple adjustment codes on Form 8949. The application will use the entries in each Adj Code column in conjunction with the calculated adjustment codes B, T, H, Q, and S, and report the codes in alphabetical order (without commas) on Form 8949.
    • B - Enter 2 or 3 in the 1099B Errors field.
    • T - Enter 1 or 3 in the 1099B Errors field.
    • H - Section 121 exclusions calculated on the Sale of Home Worksheets are automatically reported on Form 8949 with Code H. See Screen Home in the PersonalSale folder.
    • Q - Enter X or Q in the Type field.
    • S - Enter S in the Type field.

    Note: S only prints when the transaction is a loss.

    • C - Enter C in the Type field.

    The codes you can enter in this field are listed in the table that follows and in the fieldview.

    Code Description
    N Received 1099-B or 1099-S as a nominee for the actual owner
    X Excluded gain on DC Zone assets or qualified community assets
    R Postponed gain on rollover(QSB stock, publicly traded securities, etc.)
    W Nondeductible loss from a wash sale

    California note: The California Franchise Tax Board requires a loss subject to the wash sale rules to be reported as a separate item on Schedule D (540). Do not include losses subect to wash sale rules in line items that combine several transactions into one line of data entry.

    L Nondeductible loss other than wash sale (personal use asset, etc.)
    E Selling expenses or option premiums not on 1099-B or 1099-S
    EW Code E (Selling expenses) and W (Nondeductible loss from wash sale)
    M

    Multiple transactions reported on a single row

    ME Code M and E (Sell expenses/option prem not on 1099-B or 1099-S)
    MO Code M and O (Adjustment not explained with any other code)

    Notes:

    • Multiple codes report in alphabetical order without spaces or commas between codes. The IRS efile allows a maximum of 7 codes to be reported in the Adjustment Column.
    • * Multiple codes - Columns 1099B Errors, Type, Adj Code, and Screen Home (PersonalSale folder) may be used to report multiple codes for a transaction. For example, a Section 1202 gain that is 50% excludable that received a Form 1099-B with an incorrect Basis and Holding period. The following data entry will result in Form 8949 (f) Code B, E, Q, T:
      • 1099B Errors = 3 - 1099-B box 1c and 3 are incorrect (Codes B and T)
      • Type = X - 1202 gain 50% excludable
      • Adj G/L = Amount to be excluded (enter as a negative amount). The Section 1202 adjustment amount automatically populates.
      • Adj Code = E - Selling expenses were not reported on the 1099-B
  • Gain-Loss: The gain or loss for the sale automatically calculates based on the sales price, cost / basis, and Adj to G/L entered. Note that you cannot modify this column, as it automatically calculates.

    Note: The Gain -Loss column will calculate before the Adj to G/L is entered, so it may be used to determine the amount and type (positive or negative) of adjustment needed to get to the correct taxable gain/loss.

  • AMT Cost If Diff / AMT Adj G/L If Diff: Enter the AMT cost basis and/or the AMT adjustment to gain/loss if differs from the regular tax information. The amount reports on the AMT Form 8949 and AMT Form 8949 Worksheet.

    Notes

    • A zero (0) maybe entered in the AMT Cost If Diff field if applicable.
    • The Gain-Loss column will calculate before the Adj to G/L is entered, so it may be used to determine the amount and type (positive or negative) of adjustment needed to get to the correct taxable gain/loss.
  • AMT Gain -Loss: The AMT gain or loss for the sale automatically calculates based on the sales price, cost / basis, and Adj to G/L entered. If the specific AMT fields are blank the regular tax amounts will be used. Note that you cannot modify this column, as it calculates automatically.

    Note: The AMT Gain-Loss column will calculate before the AMT Adj to G/L if Diff is entered, so it may be used to determine the amount and type (positive or negative) of adjustment needed to get to the correct AMT taxable gain/loss.

  • Fed W/H: Enter withholding amounts reported on the sales transaction. Federal withholding amounts entered here transfer to Form 1040, Page 2, line 64.
