Social Security taxable amount wrong - ProSeries Professional software

Level 1

The program is calculating the taxable amount of social security income incorrectly.  The program is not calculating the correct amount on line 3 of the Social Security Benefits Worksheet.

Specifically, on line 3, the program is not using the correct amount from Schedule 1, line 9 in its calculation. When there is an amount on line 8 of Schedule 1 for the Unemployment Exclusion of $-10,200 it is ignoring that amount in the calculation of line 9, Schedule 1. So it is overstating the amount on line 3 of the SS Worksheet by $10,200, or what ever lessor amount is on line 8 of Schedule 1. Therefore, the program is including in income social security benefits that are not taxable on Form 1040 line 6b.

SS uses the entire amount of UI for its MAGI calculation.

The program is correct.  There are numerous other posts on this forum about the same thing.
