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.

Error Code F1040EZ-023: If Form 1040EZ, Line 5 checkbox 'PrimaryClaimAsDependentInd' is checked, then Line 8a 'EarnedIncomeCreditAmt' must be equal to zero if an amount is entered.

If Primary box is marked on line 5a for taxpayer, then you cannot have EIC amount on line 8a.

Please check for diagnostics and overrides by clicking View > Diagnostics or by pressing CTRL+D on your keyboard. In the diagnostic window, make sure there are no overrides in the override tab for form 1040ez and line 5 and 8a.
