crown molding return


Hello all!
I'm putting up crown molding in my kitchen. I want to end it before the corner that leads to the hall. How far from the end of the wall should I put the return??? Or, should I end it with the return cap an inch or so from the end.

Thanks in advance!!!

I usually end the return very close to the corner--1/3 or 1/2 inch---make a sample--tape it up and see what looks right--

I make mine about a half inch like Mike.
