To generate Form 8379 in ProConnect:

  1. From the Input Return tab, go to Miscellaneous Forms Injured Spouse Allocation (8379).
  2. You must make entries in all of the following fields to generate the form:
    • Injured spouse: 1=taxpayer, 2=spouse (MANDATORY).
    • Filed married filing jointly: 1=yes, 2=no.
  3. Click the box IRS did or will use joint refund to pay past due debts (required).
  4. Mark the checkbox labeled Taxpayer not legally obligated to pay past due debt of spouse (required).

Additional important information:

  • Part 1 Lines 6-8: If the checkbox marriage recognized under the laws of the community property state is checked, these aren't completed.
  • Part 1 Lines 7-9: If line 6 is checked yes, these aren't completed.
