Error Reject Code F1040-088-01: If ['StateAbbreviationCd' of the Filer's address in the Return Header is equal to "AS", "GU", "MP", "PR" or "VI"] or [the Filer's address in the Return Header is a foreign address], then Form 1040, Line 66a 'EarnedIncomeCreditAmt' must be equal to zero or not be present.

This error occurs when the Earned income credit (EIC) is claimed on Form 1040, line 66a, and a foreign address has been entered for the taxpayer on Screen 1040 in the General folder. If the taxpayer is eligible for the EIC, then the address entered on Screen 1040 must be a domestic address or the return must be paper filed.
