Turbo-Tax driving me up a tree
I am trying to finish my 2015 tax forms. Fr some years I have used Turbo-Tax, but this year I made some taxable sales of royalty trust units. As you own these, you deduct depletion from the cash you receive. This is supposed to decrease basis as an offset. A very simple idea, and easy to do manually, but Turbo-Tax makes anything like this maddening. I haven't figured out how, or if, I can just do manual IRS form entries and skip all TT's worksheets. Just use TT as a glorified adding machine and arithmetic check.
I think I remember some people here posting that they used it this way, but I cannot remember. I try the overrides, but it usually seems to come around and refuse to let me do it.
Also, is there a simpler program over which I can have more control for future years?
Thanks for any help,
