LA State Return will not accept both 02E and 06E

LA State Return will not accept both 02E and 06E.  

My 88-year-old Mother has retired fm LA State Employment.   LA Tax return says it already took care of Exemption 06E - Exemption of up to $6,000 for Seniors 65+.  And the software will not let me take an exemption for her LA State Pension of 44k which is ANOTHER LINE EXEMPTION 02E.

Can OVERride.  BUG???   Do I need to Handwrite the return....And I want my $25 back for the cost of the software!!!

TurboTax will exempt Louisiana State Employees' Retirement Benefits if you selected that option when you entered Form 1099-R.

  • Type 1099r in Search in the upper right
  • Select Jump to 1099r
  • Select Review next to your mother's pension
  • Continue until you see Where is your distribution from?
  • Select Louisiana State Employees' Retirement Benefits

You'll see both the $6,000 senior exemption and the state retirement exemption on Schedule E
