We are not with TurboTax but I would be happy to try and assist you with your problem
Are you filing a resident or a nonresident return?
Ok One minute let me look at the forms.
Turbo Tax is having a HUGE problem with this portion of their program.
Here is what TurboTax has to say about it.
"We have determined that this is caused by a 0 (zero) entry on the Federal taxable Income for Minnesota Tax Purposes screen. Please go back through the interview section and ensure that information entered is correct.
A product update was released on 3/05/2011 that provides additional information regarding Federal Taxable Income."
The Turbo TAx program is using a Line that does not exist any longer. If you follow the instructions you are to enter $0 on Line 15 and the the true amount of Fed on Line 16. This then would result in your carrying the amount (basically the entire Fed Taxable over to Line 36 of the M1M and subtracting it out of MN income.
"Update: A bill signed into law on March 21, 2011 eliminates the need for line 36.Skip line 36 and continue with line 37" Try to work around by entering the Fed Taxable on Line 15 and 0 on line 16 the program may then read as addition.
If line 15 is more than line 16, subtract line 16 from line 15. Enter the result as an addition on line 17 of Schedule M1M
You did ,and I sincerely hope you will be able to deal with Turbo Tax on your problems.
Thank you again,
