Alerts and notices

Question

What do RET, EXT, and EXF indicate in CS Connect and in the Electronic Filing Status dialog?

Answer

UltraTax/1065 creates the following electronic filing return types.

  • RET - Main return (Form 1065)
  • EXT - Main return extension (Form 7004 for Form 1065)
  • EXF - Form 8804 extension (Form 7004 for Form 8804)

Note: Although you can electronically file the extension for Form 8804, the IRS does not support electronic filing of Form 8804 and related forms and schedules.
