Efile Diagnostic Error

Level 1

The 2020 Software states it requires input of Federal Tax Withholdings listed on Form SSA-1099 in the Misc 1099 NEC field.  However, when entered in this field it wants a FEIN for the SSA -  I cannot find an SSA -  Looks like a programing issue - Any ideas to get out of the E File Error in Diagnostics?

I thought that was fixed.  Are you using the most recent version of the software?

Level 15

The input area has gone back to Screen 14 a few lines after the entry of the Social Security - Voluntary federal ....

Remove any 1099 Misc input.  You should see the withholding show up on 25 b of the 1040 or 1040SR.

Be sure you are on the latest update for the software.
