Extra paragraph symbols when using LING reporting

I’m using LINQ reporting to conditionally hide parts of the document by wrapping it in <<if …>> tags.
For example
<<if [case.isFeature1()]>>
1. Section A
2. Section B

It correctly hides portion of the content wrapped in the “if” tag however instead of the hidden text I get one extra paragraph symbol.
Is there something I need to change in my template to avoid an extra paragraph symbol?
