MFA required for electronic filing

Effective May 3rd, the 2017 version of UltraTax CS requires multi-factor authentication (MFA) to transmit e-files from CS Connect. Find out more.

By default, UltraTax CS creates a federal electronic file when you create the electronic file via the Print Returns or Print Extensions dialog if you mark the File this return electronically for Forms 990, 990-EZ, 990-PF, and 990-N returns checkbox in Screen ELF.

You can create state-only electronic files without the federal return. This option is useful when you are not electronically filing the federal return or when you must re-file the state return due to errors.

To create only a state electronic file for a client without creating the federal electronic file, enter X in the Suppress the creation of: Federal electronic file when only filing a state return or extension electronically checkbox in Screen ELF.

Note: You also have options for suppressing the automatic creation of state electronic returns when electronically filing only a federal return.
