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 F1041-081: The year of the 'FiduciarySignatureDt' in the Return Header must be equal to the processing year.

Change the Signature date on Screen ELF, located under the Electronic Filing folder, to the year transmitted.

For example, the taxpayer(s) signed the return in December while the IRS Modernized e-File (MeF) system was down for maintenance. When transmitting in January or February of the following year, the December date will be rejected by the IRS with rejection code F1041-081. Enter the January or February date in the year the electronic file is transmitted in the Signature date field in Screen ELF. Re-create and retransmit the electronic file.
