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.


When necessitated by a short-year return, can two 1120 or 1065 returns for the same client in the same tax year be e-filed?


Yes, UltraTax CS will allow two 1065 or 1120 clients with the same EIN to be e-filed in the same year. The two clients must have different tax year ends (ending in separate months) in order to be eligible for e-filing. For example, a short-year 1/1/17 - 9/30/17 and a short-year 10/1/17 - 12/31/17 return for the same client can be e-filed using the 2017 UltraTax CS program.

Note: The year ends for the client must not be in the same month (i.e. a year end of 6/15/17 and a year end of 6/30/17). If filing two returns for the same client for the same tax year with year-ends in the same month, the return must be paper filed.
