I believe I found an error in my TTax DeLuxe 2016.

The FTB D(540) says, just below the title line, "Do not complete Schedule D (540) if your California gains (losses) are the same as your federal gains."

The program generated the form anyway. I tried to get into the TTax error reporting forum, but they have an old email address and no apparent way for me to fix the error.

I found this after I concluded that I could not use CalFile (FTB efild application) because my return included a D(540)and printed and mailed in my return.

This raises a second complaint. In earlier years it was relatively simple to print a state return for mailing and feel confident that you'd included everything required. This year they are so hung- up on getting the extra $30 for e-filing the return for you that they make mailing in a copy a challenge.

Did anyone else experience this?
