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.

Error code SC-F1040-002-02: One of the following lines in Schedule C (Form 1040) must have a non-zero value: Line 1 'TotalGrossReceiptsAmt', Line 7 'GrossIncomeAmt', Line 28 'TotalExpensesAmt', Line 29 'TentativeProfitOrLossAmt', Line 31 'NetProfitOrLossAmt'.

In order to file electronically, there must a positive amount on at least one of the following Schedule C lines:

If there isn't a positive amount on at least one of those lines, then the return cannot be filed electronically per IRS e-File specifications. If the Schedule C is not required to be filed, but you want to keep the activity in the tax return, mark Inactive activity for 2017 on Screen C. If the Schedule C is required to be filed, the return will then need to be filed on paper. If filing the return on paper, refer to 1040-US ELF: Form 8948 -Paper Filing Exceptions.
