Hi everyone. Got a question for the pratitioners out there. I am moving to a new tax package this year and am wondering about something.
If a taxpayer has automobile expenses, the 2 questions concerning 'evidence to support' and 'is it written' must be answered Yes or No (Does ANYONE ever answer NO?). Anyway, I have found that the diagnostics in every package I tested, expect one, missed the diag when I intentionally left one of the two checkboxes blank.
Does the IRS assume a YES answer if the boxes are not checked? During a busy tax season, I will miss this. My old tax package caught the blank entry for me, but the new one does not.
Thank a bunch.....!
