Change to CS Support service hours

Our Support department is closed on [[date]]. However, limited UltraTax CS phone support is available on that date from 9 AM - 5 PM ET due to the approaching deadline.

Links to our most popular tax processing topics are available in the Alerts and notices section on the right side of most pages.

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
