Lacerte Fatal Diagnostics

Fatal Diagnostics will prevent the electronic record from being created.

There are three categories of diagnostics;

  1. Fatal - generated when fundamental information is missing from a return.  These diagnostics will prevent the electronic return from being created.
  2. Critical - generated when critical information may affect the outcome of the return.  These can be both fatal and informational.  These diagnostics will sometimes prevent the electronic return from being created.
  3. Informational - generated when information has been entered that could affect the outcome of the return, and does not require a change or adjustment.

Note: Diagnostics related to an e-file return will be noted as 'e-file'.
