Incorrect Data: /Return/ReturnData/IRS851/SubsidiaryCorporationInfo/CorporationEIN: For each Subsidiary Corporation in Form 851, Part I, the EIN of the Subsidiary ("CorporationEIN" of "SubsidiaryCorporationInfo") must not be the same as the EIN of the Filer (Common Parent Corporation) in the Return Header.

If this error code is received, verify that the subsidiary(ies) do not have the same EIN as the parent return. Access Screen 851, located under the Consolidated folder, and review each unit. The first unit's EIN should not be duplicated on another unit. If there is a duplicate EIN, access the applicable subsidiary by clicking the Family button in upper right corner. Access File / Client Properties and change the EIN. Next, print preview the return.
