IRS filing deadline update

The IRS MeF system is now processing returns, and the filing deadline has been extended to 11:59 PM on Wednesday, April 18, 2018. For the latest details, see UltraTax CS alerts and notices.

Error Code IND-016:  If 'USAddress' has a value in [FECRecord], then checkbox 'WorkPerformedResidingInUSInd' must be checked.

When receiving this rejection, you'll want to verify the address information has been entered correctly on Screen 1040, located under the General folder.  In most cases, there is an entry in the zip field, which needs to be removed.

Also, review your data entry on Screen FEC, located under the Income folder.  If employee address information has been entered, remove this as well.

Once your data entry has been corrected, press CTRL+D to review ELF Critical diagnostics.  Once these diagnostics are clear, you can recreate and resubmit the electronic file.
