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 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.
