My NYS return wants me to "Check This Entry: Other Additions/Subtractions Stmt (225): Sch B Part 2 Code-5 is not a valid subtraction code. How do I get past this?

Seems to be related to Form IT-225.  What is that form and why do I need it?  I do not live in NY, nor do I have business there. I am a US expat and haven't lived in the US for more than 30 years.

Thank you for your assistance.  I have found the answer to my question.  More of a programming problem as the return software kept asking me to input codes without explaining what they were, and that was probably because the NYS Form IT-225 itself was unclear.  Turns out I had input 0 in five places thinking they wanted a dollar value.  The software identified that as wrong but didn't tell me why it was wrong.  Had to start the return over and erase the fields to blanks before it would clear those errors.  Sorry if I caused anyone some unnecessary research.

Go to: Edit State Form, Changes to Federal income, then scroll down to "Other New York Adjustment to Federal Income" and go through all of them and delete the zeros. Specially the last tab.

Hi! I see what you are saying but am not able to actually change the zeros in the actual form - is there a trick to this? It appears to be un-editable on my end :(
