How does Quicken know to categorize some interest income as non-taxable

Options
Other interest income is classified as taxable. How does Quicken know? I have checked and two bonds should both be shown as non-taxable, but one is reported as taxable and the other is not.

    Go to Tools > Security List > click on the bond in question > Edit Details.  Is the box for Tax free checked?  If not, check it.

    Yikes, is my face red?! I must have overlooked that box a dozen times as I checked to see the settings of each of the securities in question. I feel like a dummy! Thanks.

    No problem.  We all have our "duh!" moments!   :D   Normally, when a security is downloaded from the brokerage or when Asset Classes are downloaded the tax status is automatically entered.  But sometimes it just needs to be manually updated to reflect that.
