MFA required for electronic filing

Effective May 3rd, the 2017 version of UltraTax CS requires multi-factor authentication (MFA) to transmit e-files from CS Connect. Find out more.

Error code SC-F1040-015-01: If Schedule C (Form 1040), Line 30a 'TotalAreaOfHomeCnt' and Line 30b 'HomeBusinessUseSquareFeetCnt' both have a non-zero value, then Line 30 'HomeBusinessExpenseAmt' must not be greater than (1500 plus the sum of all Form 8829, Line 35 'AllowableHomeBusExpnssSchCAmt').

IRS e-File specifications do not allow for both methods of reporting home office expenses in the same return; therefore, the return will need to filed on paper. To file the return on paper, refer to 1040-US ELF: Form 8948 - Paper Filing Exceptions.
