2020 Lacerte, Individual:
I am filing moving expenses for California and Screen 27 says that the moving screen can be used for states that do not conform to TCJA.
I'm receiving a critical diagnostic Ref. #55110 that says "e-file: Form 3903 without being marked as a Member of the Armed Forces and doing a permanent move due to change in station will fail when electronic filing. This return will have to filed as a conventional paper return. (ref. #55110)"
Is there a way for this diagnostic to be cleared and e-file? I think this is a 2020 bug because I haven't had this in past years. We are not trying to file a Form 3903 for the federal return, only California.
Solved! Go to Solution.
at the suggestions of another community member, I did not have moving expenses in, unchecked e-file state, and filed Federal. Then I unchecked e-file Federal, added the moving expenses, checked the box for a military move, and then filed CA. Both returns went through.
