We're aware of an issue when filing 2021 IR6 Estate or trust returns in myIR. The amount of a loss brought forward from previous years being claimed this year may prepopulate with a negative figure and customers may see an error message advising 'Amount claimed this year: Claimed amount cannot be negative'.
This is occurring when customers have a loss brought forward from previous years and are also claiming a deduction for expenses in the 2021 IR6 return. This figure cannot be updated, and customers cannot continue to file the return.
We are currently working on a fix for this issue.
If you receive this error message, please complete the return excluding the expenses to be claimed and attach correspondence providing details of the expenses, then file the return. When the return is received, we will adjust it to include the expenses for you. We will advise when this issue has been fixed and these returns can be filed correctly.
