Change to CS Support service hours

Our Support department is closed on Friday, April 28th for a company event. However, limited Accounting CS phone support is available on that date from 9 AM - 5 PM ET due to the approaching deadline for quarterly payroll tax forms.

Links to our most popular payroll tax processing topics are available in the Alerts and notices section on the right side of most pages.

If you receive an acknowledgement of Accepted with errors for your client's 1094-C/1095-C internet file, you will need to submit a corrected 1094-C/1095-C internet file. Your corrected file must include transmission information, which includes the original receipt ID, the submission ID, and (if you are correcting 1095-C forms) record identifiers for each employee whose form has an error.

The Submission ID and record identifier that you need to include in your corrected form 1094-C/1095-C internet file can be found on the 1094-C/1095-C Batch Worksheet that was displayed when the original 1094-C and 1095-C forms were created. You can also use the following steps to locate the transmission information manually.

  1. Click the Download link in the IRS Transmission Status Details to download the XML response message file.
  2. Open the file in Internet Explorer. The first section of the XML file includes records indicating which client's 1094-C/1095-C forms have errors. Show me
    client error records
  3. The next section of the file lists the specific error messages, along with the receipt ID, submission ID, and record identifier. This information can be entered in the Corrected File Transmission Details dialog, accessed from the Actions > Edit Payroll Tax Forms screen.
