The estate has taxable and tax-exempt interest. Since I have been having problems, I started a new return and only entered the taxable interest.

I am attempting to distribute the interest income on 2 K-1s.

The interview form for the K-1 asks for Tier 1 and Tier 2 distributions and percentage for beneficiary.

Entering 0 results in no distributions.

Entering a value in either Tier 1 or Tier 2, results in distribution on the K-1s. Schedule B doesn't look correct. Entering either Tier 1 or 2 distributions results inLine 10 Other amount paid, credited or otherwise required to be distributed being greater than the income for the estate. The amount appears to be the income plus the amount distributed on the K-1s.

Line 15 Income distribution deduction is correct.
