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 F2439-502-01:  Form 2439, 'RICOrREITEIN' must match data in the e-File database.

Verify the EIN and name of RIC or REIT on Screen 2439, located under the Income folder, have been entered correctly.  If you need to make a correction, do so and then recreate and resubmit the electronic file.  If the EIN and name look to be correct, you'll need to contact the IRS.  If you continue to receive the rejection, the return will need to be filed on paper.  If filing the return on paper, refer to Form 8948 - Paper Filing Exceptions.
