When you use the Tax Worksheet in Microsoft Money 98 the tax liability may not be calculated correctly. Money may apply the maximum Capital Gains Rate even though there is a capital loss.
This problem may occur when the following conditions are true:
- You use the Tax Estimator to calculate the tax.
- The Short-Term Capital Gains amount is negative.
- The Long-Term Capital Gains amount is negative.
You can only apply the Long-Term Capital Gains tax at a maximum rate when both the Short-Term and Long-Term Gains are positive. The way the tax worksheet code is calculating the tax, you are getting a double benefit. The benefit is a Capital Loss and capped taxation on the Long-Term Capital Gains, which was already included in the loss.
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in the Microsoft products listed at the beginning of this article.
This problem has been corrected in Microsoft Money 99.
