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.

Rule F7004-904-01: Form 7004, the tax year ending date ('TaxPeriodEndDt' specified in the Return Header) must match the data in the e-file database unless one of the checkboxes in Line 5b - "Initial Return", "Final Return" or "Consolidated return to be filed" is checked.

This error generally occurs because the tax period end date within the IRS' database does not match the tax period end date in the electronic file. For example, the return may be a calendar year end 12/31/YY; however, the IRS' database shows the client's year end as a fiscal year end, 06/30/YY. To resolve this rejection, contact the IRS e-Help Desk.

Note: Form 7004 will not mark box 5b as initial return if the tax year is not less than 12 months. If the return is an initial short-year return, enter the Tax year beginning date on Screen 1120 in the General folder.
