I'm having trouble e-filing a 990 short period return due to change in accounting year. It is not a final year return the entity still exist. I can't seem to get proseries to e-file it. Any ideas?
Per IRS Publication 4164, specifically sections 1.6.2 and 184.108.40.206, Form 990 short period returns (except for short period final returns) are exempt/excluded from the electronic filing requirement under section 6011(e)(3) and the corresponding regulations, due to IRS limitations that currently prevent the returns and attachments from being filed electronically. Please refer to Publication 4164 for details. You may also contact the IRS Tax Exempt and Government Entities Customer Account Services at (877) 829-5500 for more information on how to proceed with filing the return.
Yes I did. ProSeries and the E-file area says it has to be e-filed. I can not e-file with the errors on page one stating that it has to be filed as A Final Return/terminated. There are no other options. If I change the status to Mailing then the Extension is disassociated with the return. Why is there not a way to change the forced decision for the Short Year filing when the Form 1128 has been approved (have attached it to the return)?
