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 IND-680-01: If the Spouse SSN in the Return Header is under the age of 16 and did not file a tax return in the previous year, then the 'PINTypeCd' must not have the value "Self-Select Practitioner".

Spouses under the age of 16 must have filed a tax return in the preceding tax year in order to qualify to use the Self-Select PIN.  

If the spouse is under the age of 16 and has never filed a tax return, then you'll need to use the Practitioner PIN method or the return will need to be filed on paper.  If filing the return on paper, refer to 1040 - US ELF:  Form 8948 - Paper Filing Exceptions.

If the spouse is under the age of 16 but has filed a tax return in a prior year, access Screen PIN, located under the Electronic Filing folder, and mark the Taxpayer or spouse under age 16 and previously filed a return checkbox.
