My solution to this problem would be to setup a temporary asset account
for “input tax deductible in following period/year”. At least that’s the
way it’s done here in Germany and you got a very formal tax office that
also requires this for your periodic returns and not just at the end of
the year.

But yes other software usually has an option to decide whether to
include tax information from a previous period in the current return or
to send a correction of the previous one.
