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.

If the Federal e-file is not being created and is not listed in CS Connect for transmission, access Screen ELF, located under the Electronic Filing folder. Most likely the Federal return has been suppressed by marking the Suppress creation of: Federal electronic file when only filing a state return/extension electronically checkbox. If it is marked, unmark the checkbox and then re-create the e-file.

Additional Note: If the box is marked Taxpayer(s) choose(s) to file the federal return on paper in the Form 8948 - Paper Filing Exceptions area of screen ELF, you will receive an error that there are no electronic files to error check and the file will not be created.
