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.

By default, UltraTax CS creates a federal electronic file when you create the electronic file via the Print Returns or Print Extensions dialog if you mark the File this return electronically checkbox on Screen ELF or the File extension electronically checkbox on Screen ELFExt.

You can create state-only and city-only electronic files without the federal return. This option is useful when you are not electronically filing the federal return or when you must re-file the state return due to errors.

To create only a state electronic file for a client without creating the federal electronic file, enter X in the Suppress the creation of: Federal electronic file when only filing other returns/forms electronically (state return, extension, etc.) checkbox on Screen ELF.

Note: You also have options for suppressing the automatic creation of state electronic returns when electronically filing only a federal return.
