Apply Partial Payments to Proper Tax Year

So, I'm generating my profit/loss report so I can file my income tax return, and notice I have two problematic invoices in my "Income" list: one invoice was
partially paid and remains open, as it's a long-term project; the other is closed, but was paid half before 1/1/16, the other half after. The report is insisting on counting both of these as income /in full /for last year. It's not a huge sum of money, and probably won't make much of a difference in my return, but would like dates the income was collected (or not) to be properly reflected in the report. Thanks for any suggestions.

I am not an accountant - but it is my understanding that if you are reporting on a cash basis you reduce your income by the year-end Balance Sheet amount of 'Accounts Receivable'.
That balance sheet line item should include the un-received payment shown in the income statement.

Yes, if working on "Cash Basis" you claim only supplier invoices paid by you and customer invoices collected by you within the accounting year.
If working on "Accrued Basis" you claim all supplier invoices issued to you and customer invoices you have written, dated within the accounting year whether or not you have paid the invoice or your customer has paid you.
