If line 8 (tax estimation) won't populate on a year conversion in Florida File, your company is set up as a non-standard filer.
Non-standard filers have 13 periods for the year. For standard filers, line 8 on the January return is populated with the period 12 tax amount from the previous year. For non-standard filers, the first return for the year is populated with the period 13 tax amount from the previous year.
If you are setup as non-standard, but need to change to standard, please follow these steps:
- Click File.
- Click Select Company, Location and Filing Period.
- Click Edit on the company you need to change.
- Check the box to the right of File/Payment Options and Tax Estimates.
- Line 8 on the Florida tax return form should now populate.
