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 SH-F1040-003: Schedule H (Form 1040), 'EmployerEIN' must not be equal to the 'PrimarySSN' or the 'SpouseSSN' in the Return Header.

Access Screen H, located under the Taxes folder, and verify the entered EIN. If the EIN is indeed correct, then the return will need to be paper filed. The IRS will not allow an EIN on Schedule H that is the same as the taxpayer's or spouse's SSN.
