I have clients who adopted a child in Nov.2012 and when I try to enter the info. on the Dependant info it won't let me enter the info.Please advise the steps.

Answer

That is curious,  could you check please if your return is Locked.  In which case you would not be able to enter any information on the return at all. and all of the fields will be green.

On the top tool bar there is a blue circle with an (i) in it >  click on that and the return file properties will pop up >  the Locked check box is in the top right corner > Uncheck it and your return will be good to  modify.

If this is not the problem then please respond back with more information as to which error message or steps you are doing so that your issue may be better resolved.

People come to ProFile for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
