How can I print Form 8879-F prior to creating the electronic file?


Ordinarily, UltraTax/1041 will not complete Form 8879-F until all of the required PIN fields have been completed. You can print the return with Form 8879-F and the filing instructions for your client for them to complete and return to you and then enter the remaining PIN information. To generate Form 8879-F and the filing instructions, mark the Print Form 8879-F field on Screen ELF. Note that if you mark this field, UltraTax/1041 will generate error codes if all fields do not have complete data. Therefore, you must enter all applicable PIN information before you create the electronic file.
