Can I electronically file Form 1040-SS or Form 1040-PR?


To electronically file Form 1040-SS or Form 1040-PR, the return must contain a Form W-2 or W-2PR, an Additional Child Tax Credit, no balance due, and the only source of refund must be the Additional Child Tax Credit. The only additional form allowed is Form 8888, Direct Deposit of Refund to More Than One Account. Page 2 and Page 3 are limited to one firm or business activity unit.
