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 F8283-030:  If Form 8283, Section B Line 4i checkbox 'VehicleInd' is checked, then "Contributions of Motor Vehicles, Boats, and Airplanes Statement" [ContributionsOfMotorVehiclesBoatsAndAirplanesStatement] or "Contemporaneous Written Acknowledgment Statement" [ContemporaneousWrittenAcknowledgmentStatement] must be attached to 'PropertyInformation'.

Note: Do not include contributions of motor vehicles, boats, and airplanes on Screen 8283P1 or 8283P2. Enter all contributions of motor vehicles, boats, and airplanes on Screen 1098C.

Because the return is being filed electronically, and Form 8283 includes information for a donated vehicle, a PDF attachment with a description beginning with "Form1098C" or "DoneeOrganizationContemporaneousWrittenAcknowledgement" must be included in the electronic file.  To attach a PDF copy of the contemporaneous written acknowledgment, complete the following steps.

  1. Choose Edit > Electronic Filing Attachments.
  2. Click the Add button.
  3. In the “Add attachment to” group box, select Federal from the Product drop-down list and choose Tax Return from the Return drop-down list.
  4. In the Attachment title field, select Form1098C or DoneeOrganizationContemporaneousWrittenAcknowledgement. For each selection, replace "enter name" with the name of the donee organization.
  5. In the Attachment file source group box, specify the file to be attached by either manually entering the location or clicking on the Browse button.
  6. Click OK twice. 

To specify a paper document attachment Form 8453, enter 1 Yes (in ERO’s possession) or 3 Yes (in taxpayer’s possession) in the Form 1098-C field in Screen 8453, and attach the donor documentation to Form 8453.

This rejection may still come up after attaching the appropriate PDF attachment. This is typically due to missing data entry on Screen 1098C. See 1040-US ELF: Error Code F8283-028-01 for data entry required to e-file that has a donated vehicle. 

Once these steps have been completed, you can re-create and resubmit the electronic file.
