Vermont Use Tax not calculated correctly using AGI method

The Vermont state return software calculates VT Use Tax incorrectly using the AGI method.  The program correctly asks for items that cost greater than $1,000, but an additional amount for items under $1000 is supposed to be determined using the Use Tax Reporting Table based on AGI. However, if there are no items over $1000, turbo tax is returning an an amount of $0 regardless of AGI.

I found a way to manually override the incorrect entry, but that defeats the purpose of the software - I didn't want to manually fill in forms!

Is there a plan to correct this bug?

Answer

We are aware of this issue and it will be fixed in the next release. The next Vermont update will be available around 4/6/2012.

People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
