MFA required for electronic filing

Effective May 3rd, the 2017 version of UltraTax CS requires multi-factor authentication (MFA) to access the electronic filing transmission feature in CS Connect.

Thomson Reuters is committed to proactively evolving our security features to help you protect your firm and your clients' data. For more information about multi-factor authentication, see Multi-factor authentication overview.

F1040-273: If Form 1040, Line 52 'ResidentialEnergyCreditAmt' has a non-zero value, then Form 5695 must be attached to Line 52.

To electronically file a return that contains Form 5695, a credit amount must appear on Form 1040, line 52 for inclusion on the current-year tax return. If the credit is fully limited and carried forward in its entirety to the next tax year, the return must be filed on paper. If filing a return on paper, refer to Form 8948 - Paper Filing Exceptions.

Also, check for an override on line 52. To remove the override, choose Edit > Delete override.

If the return does not qualify for the current-year credit or carryforward, delete all information on Screen Cr-3, located under the Credits folder, by choosing Edit > Delete Screen Data; by doing so, Form 5695 will no longer appear in the return, and the rejection will no longer apply.
