The amount paid in 2016 and refunded in 2016 would not be treated as income and a deduction according to the publication. ProSeries did do this somewhat correctly the last time I tested this. Did they break this or is the "Pro" you referenced a different product.
I believe this alternative treatment is what I had already referenced in the 4th paragraph of my 11/16/2017 comment upthread ??
