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.

F1040-273: If Form 1040, Line 52 'ResidentialEnergyCreditAmt' has a non-zero value, then Form 5695 must be attached to Line 52.

To electronically file a return that contains Form 5695, a credit amount must appear on Form 1040, line 52 for inclusion on the current-year tax return. If the credit is fully limited and carried forward in its entirety to the next tax year, the return must be filed on paper. If filing a return on paper, refer to Form 8948 - Paper Filing Exceptions.

Also, check for an override on line 52. To remove the override, choose Edit > Delete override.

If the return does not qualify for the current-year credit or carryforward, delete all information on Screen Cr-3, located under the Credits folder, by choosing Edit > Delete Screen Data; by doing so, Form 5695 will no longer appear in the return, and the rejection will no longer apply.
