When you look at an onscreen tax form using Forms Mode, you might wonder why one figure is blue and the one next to it is red or black.
These colors indicate the source of that data.
|Blue||You entered this data, either in the interview or Forms Mode.|
|Black||The program entered this data or calculated this amount.|
|Red||This data has either been overridden or is invalid (for example, a ZIP code that doesn't exist).|
|Red (italics)||You marked this amount as estimated.|
||The program calculated this amount from an amount you marked as estimated.|
|Purple||This information has supporting details.|
|Aqua||This data was transferred over from last year.|
|Green||This data was imported from Quicken or QuickBooks.|
