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 F8863-003-03: Each 'StudentSSN' that has a value on Form 8863, Line 21 can only be used once to claim either Line 30 'AmerOppCreditNetCalcExpnssAmt' or Line 31 'LifetimeQualifiedExpensesAmt'.

Review SSN entered on Screen Educate, located under the Educate folder, within the Eligible student information statement dialog (located near the bottom of the input screen) in the Student's SSN fieldview. If the SSN is incorrect, enter the correct SSN, then re-create and resubmit the e-file. If the SSN is indeed correct, then the return will need to be paper filed, if you continue to file Form 8863 because the IRS already has this SSN filed on another Form 8863.
