The client took a distribution from her Roth IRA prior to age 59.5. Part of the distribution was used to pay education costs. How do I reduce the portion of the distribution that is subject to early withdrawal penalty by the exception of the education costs?

A neat trick to learn in Lacerte is find what you want in the forms view. In this case look at the 5329 Part I line 2 and RIGHT CLICK on that line (or sometimes a box) and select "Jump to Input" .
That should get you to the 1099R input for 5329. Enter the Amount and then next line select from the drop down choices.
