MFA required for electronic filing

Effective May 3rd, the 2017 version of UltraTax CS requires multi-factor authentication (MFA) to access the electronic filing transmission feature in CS Connect.

Thomson Reuters is committed to proactively evolving our security features to help you protect your firm and your clients' data. For more information about multi-factor authentication, see Multi-factor authentication overview.

Error Code 1040A-260: If the tax payer is 70 1/2 years or older at the end of the tax year, and Form 1040A, Line 2 checkbox "Married filing jointly" is not checked (element 'IndividualReturnFilingStatusCd' does not have the value 2), then Line 17 'IRADeductionAmt' must be equal to zero if an amount is entered.

Check for diagnostics and overrides by clicking View > Diagnostics or by pressing CTRL+D on your keyboard. In the diagnostic window, be sure that there are no overrides in the override tab for form 1040A or the IRA worksheets
