Muni Bond Glitch in Turbotax
So DW and I were doing our FIT in Turbotax last week, and got up to the 1099-INT. We have municipal bonds from a couple different states, and in the box for what state it says VARIOUS, so we enter that in the program. At the end, we are doing the federal review, and it says we have to enter a CUSIP like we only have one bond. The word VARIOUS is in the space but the program will not accept that. I eventually figured out that if I add 00 to the end of the word VARIOUS, Turbotax would continue. It seemed to need the entry to be the same length as a CUSIP number.
