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.

I have a homeowners association return that I elected to file and e-file as an 1120 this year (1120-H last year) and it was rejected for reason: "The return type indicated in the return header must match the return type established with the IRS for the EIN". What do I do?

Even though the return being filed is an 1120, the IRS still has the return on file as an 1120-H type; therefore, the IRS will reject the return for being the wrong entity type. In this situation, the return will need to be filed on paper.
