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 F1040-076-01: Form 1040, Line 6c, for each dependent provided, if Line 6c (4) checkbox 'EligibleForChildTaxCreditInd' is checked, then that dependent's age must be under 17.

To correct this error code, verify the date of birth. Also, ensure that the child was under age 17 at the end of the current tax year.

If the return is rejected after correcting any information and retransmitting the e-file, it may be due to an incorrect date of birth on file with the Social Security Administration.

If you receive this rejection, but the dependent information is correct within the UltraTax CS dependent data entry, please have the taxpayer contact the IRS Accounts Management hotline at 800.829.0922 and the Social Security Administration hotline at 800.772.1213 to correct the date of birth on file. It may take the SSA up to 10 days to notify the IRS after they have updated their files. Afterward, an electronic return can be resubmitted.

If the SSN and name control still reject, a paper return must be filed.
