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 F8283-028-01:  If Form 8283, Section A Line 1 Column (b) checkbox 'DonatedPropertyVehicleInd' is checked, then "Contributions of Motor Vehicles, Boats, and Airplanes Statement" [ContributionsOfMotorVehiclesBoatsAndAirplanesStatement] or "Contemporaneous Written Acknowledgment Statement" [ContemporaneousWrittenAcknowledgmentStatement] must be attached to 'InformationOnDonatedProperty' for the corresponding vehicle.

If this error is received, verify the data entry on Screen 1098C, located under the Itemized folder, for the following fields.

Note: The following fields (boxes) in Screen 1098-C must be completed to electronically file the return: 4a; 4b; 4c, 5a, or 5c; 5b; 7; and Fair market value on date of contribution. If any of these boxes are not completed, the return must be paper filed. The IRS is trying to prevent fraud. The organization that receives the donated vehicle usually sells the car, therefore, this is the amount of proceeds the organization received for the property.

When Form 1098-C was not provided but a contemporaneous written acknowledgment was provided, the data entry would look very similar to the above screen shots with one addition: enter the relevant and applicable information in the Contemporaneous written acknowledgment field near the top of Screen 1098C.

Note: This error can be corrected with either a Form 8453 paper attachment or a PDF attachment. When attaching a paper document of the contemporaneous written acknowledgement to Form 8453, in Screen 8453, enter 1 (Yes) in the Form 1098-C field. Otherwise, when attaching a scanned contemporaneous written acknowledgement in PDF format, go to Edit > Electronic Filing Attachments, click Add, select Federal in the Product field, and in the Attachment title field, enter DoneeOrganizationContemporaneousWrittenAcknowledgment followed by the donee name.
