Error Code R0000-142-01: If you are a paid tax return preparer, you must use a Preparer Tax Identification Number (PTIN) issued by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to identify yourself in the paid preparer section of the tax return. In future years, tax returns may be rejected if an SSN, or any number that is not a valid PTIN, is included in this field.

Verify that a preparer has been selected under File > Client Properties and that they also have a PTIN entered under Setup > Office Configuration > Preparers. Once a PTIN has been entered, and the preparer selected, you can recreate and resubmit the electronic file.
