Error Code F8868-908: Database Validation Error: /Return/ReturnHeader/TaxPeriodEndDt: If Form 8868, Item 'ExtensionReturnCd' is any value other than "03" (Form 4720 individual), "08" (Form 1041-A) or "10" (Form 5227), or Line 2, 'InitialReturnInd', 'FinalReturnInd', or 'AccountingPeriodChangeInd' checkbox is not checked, then tax year ending date ('TaxPeriodEndDt' specified in the Return Header) must match data in the e-file database. 

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, verify that the following information is entered correctly in Screen 990, in the General folder:

If the items listed above have been entered correctly, contact the IRS e-Help Desk to resolve the rejection.
