Problem

An issue has been reported in Reckon APS Tax Manager and Elite Forms 2020.2.0 where multiple partnership distribution are flowing to the individual return and triggered error, GEN.001001

Solution

The problem described in this article has been fixed in Reckon APS Tax Manager and Elite Forms 2020.3.0.

Workaround

For the returns that having the problem, the workaround is to delete and recreate the returns for both the partners and the partnership. 
Before first time distribute from the partnership to the partners' returns, please make sure all the partners' returns are open. 

To remove Mandatory field not supplied (Share of Other Income), please enter a number for Share of Other Income. 
Please note the sum of fields circled in the Yellow must be equal to the sum of the fields circled in Red


To remove Mandatory field not supplied (Share of net financial investment) and (Share of Other Income), please fill in Item 51 Income Test in the partnership return, then redistribute. 

If this doesn't remove the errors, another workaround is to set the partners as non-clients in the distribution group, then manually enter the partnership distribution in the individual returns.
