Support: (1) The amount paid with the return does not need to be on both Screen 9465 and Screen ELF. Can be on both, but must be on Screen 9465; (2) if the 9465 does not print, check the option, "Approved through online payment agreement application" on Screen 9465 (this option suppresses the form); and (3) suppressing EFW on Screen ELF WILL NOT suppress EFW for the 9465; can suppress on Screen ELF, send in check with return, and pay 9465 amounts through EFW.
