Message to Correct the Date of Sale

I'm getting an error message that the date of sale I entered is not within the tax year of 12/26/94 through 12/31/94 using Turbo Tax for Business for Home Sale.  I'm doing taxes for 2020 so I don't understand why I am getting this message.

Message to Correct the Date of Sale

Are you using TurboTax for Business?  Does the error message really refer to dates in 1994?

Message to Correct the Date of Sale

Yes.  I found out the error was that I checked the box for partial year return instead of calendar year (my mom passed on 1/24/2020 so I am only covering the period form 1/24 through 12/31/2020) -  the trust I am working on was created on 12/26/1994 and that seemed to make the system think that the period of the return was 12/26/1994 - 12/31/1994.  I changed the period to calendar year return and was able to get around the problem so I'm good now.  Thanks.
