An issue has been reported in Reckon APS Tax 2018.0.0 whereby the following error message is triggered incorrectly in some individual tax returns:

VR.ATO.IITR.310072 Other income type - Category description are incomplete

This issue has been fixed in Reckon APS Tax 2018.2.0.

When any component of other income - category 1 is present in the return, it must be complete with description and income amount.

The following workaround is available if the information mentioned above is complete:

1. Enter a zero (0) dollar value in Reimbursements of tax related and/or election expenses (including remission of ATO interest charge) field under Item 24.

2. Remove the zero and the error will clear.
