Error Code F8283-031-01:  If Form 8283, Section B Line 4i checkbox 'VehicleInd' is checked, then a binary attachment [with Description beginning with 'Form1098C' or 'DoneeOrganizationContemporaneousWrittenAcknowledgment'] must be attached to Form 8283 or the 'Form1098CPaperDocumentInd' in the Return Header must have a choice of 'Yes' indicated.

Because the return is being filed electronically, and Form 8283 includes information for a donated vehicle, then a PDF attachment with a description beginning with "Form 1098C" or "DoneeOrganizationContemporaneousWrittenAcknowledgement" must be included in the electronic file.  To attach a PDF copy of the contemporaneous written acknowledgment, complete the following steps:

  1. Choose Edit > Electronic Filing Attachments.
  2. Click the Add button.
  3. In the “Add attachment to” box, choose Federal from the Product drop-down menu and Tax Return from the Return drop-down menu.
  4. In the Attachment title drop-down menu choose Form1098C or DoneeOrganizationContemporaneousWrittenAcknowledgement (replace the “” text with the name of the donee organization).
  5. In the Attachment file source box, specify the file to be attached by either manually typing the location, or clicking on the Browse button.

To specify a paper document attachment Form 8453, enter 1 Yes (in ERO’s possession) or 3 Yes (in taxpayer’s possession) in the Form 1098-C field in Screen 8453, and attach the donor documentation to Form 8453.

Once the above mentioned steps have been completed, you can recreate and resubmit the electronic file.
