Form 1116 efile error

MelissaL
Level 3

Returns that include Form 1116 are being rejected as of 2/18.  Code: /Return/ReturnData/I.  The detail gives no line number and simply says data in the return is missing or invalid. There are no error codes on the form and there is no missing or invalid data. Is anyone else experiencing this issue?

Do you happen to have used "Various" as the date paid or accrued?  If so, you need to enter an actual date for e-filing purposes.

Just a hunch.  What did you enter for Country to which taxes were paid or accrued?

@MelissaL If country doesn't convert, that would explain the rejection.

I am having the same issue.  Correct dates are included. Nothing seems unusual with my entries.

@IntuitAustin  can you find any info on this? 

Ive got a preparer here in town calling me asking if I know what this rejection is about, hes getting it too!

FWIW I had one accepted yesterday with foreign tax credit, a measly $4 on their 1099DIV, so its not all of them that are getting kicked.

@Just-Lisa-Now-  I suppose the one you have qualified for 904(j) and no F.1116 was prepared?

So the preparer here in town with the same rejection just called, he sent his back through and it was accepted, so maybe just a transmission glitch?

Hi. This is general category income, foreign tax paid on wages. Form 1116 shows a specific country and paid date. Without a line noted in the reject info I have absolutely no idea what Proseries wants us to fix or add. We were not having any issues then all of a sudden they are begin rejected. Thanks for your help!

What is the bottom line with this?  I am waiting to speak with someone. i submitted 2 x....and then read your note about date so I changed from various to 12/15/2020. It didn't happen last year

i am reporting that my tax return was finally accepted after removing various and putting in the date.  Folks on phone have no idea about the issue

I am having the same problem, two returns rejected so far, both with Paid and Various for the date.

On the other hand, a return went through with Accrued and a date of 12/31/20

I am going to try to efile a "Paid" 1116 with 12/31/20 instead of Various and see what happens.

A return that had Paid and Various was rejected.

I changed the Various to 12/31/20 and it went through.

I do not know whether this is a Proseries or IRS issue (or both), but I was not aware of any change prohibiting "Various" when the method is Paid. I'd sure like some information/clarification from Intuit on this as technically 12/31/20 is not the Paid date, rather Various is more accurate.

@LesEdy The IRS MeF Schema changed this year and an exact date is now required for e-filing although this does not impact returns filed on paper.  The OP confirmed earlier that the rejection is not related to this date issue.

I see what you're saying.  Someone is getting errors even with a date entered.  I have not experienced that yet, entering a date has fixed all my rejects so far. I noticed that Proseries is "forcing" us to check either the paid or accrued box, although I file plenty of 1116's where there is no current year foreign tax to report (various reasons apply) and I don't see why one should have to check a box when the rest of that part of the form is empty.  Probably if I check a box then I'll have to enter an (irrelevant) date too...

And it sure would be nice for INTUIT to communicate these changes to us (did they?), and not fellow users.  That's like going to the doctor and getting your examination by someone else in the waiting room.  Who are we paying anyway?

I am having the same issue.  I have the date 12/31/20 entered, but the rejects seems to have something to do with the input of "various" for the country.  It is foreign tax paid on mutual funds often paid to several countries.  The taxpayer even called their investment advisor at Vanguard who said there is no way they will trace all the countries some of these funds are paying taxes to.  I am hoping an update will fix this.

If it's mutual funds you can select "RIC" as the country name (stands for Regulated Investment Company, I think). Form 1116 instructions:

You don't need to report income
passed through from a mutual
fund or other regulated
investment company (RIC) on a
country-by-country basis. Total all
income, in the applicable category,
passed through from the mutual fund or
other RIC and enter the total in a single
column in Part I. Enter “RIC” on line i.

Wondering if you've had any luck reaching anyone who knows anything about what is going on with this error. I've got about 25 returns that were submitted up to 5 days ago that I can't resolve.

My client's return is being consistently rejected with the following message:

<<Make certain you have a country listed in each column of Form 1116 and an actual date in Part II for the Foreign Taxes Paid or Accrued>>

I have both required pieces of information already entered. I may take up someone's suggestion and try to use the 'Date Accrued' instead of the 'Date Paid'

Hi there @MelissaL , 

Can you check to see if you have information entered in this form? (Form 1116, 1116 Comp Wks) 

If you enter information on this form, you should be able to submit the return.

Thanks, but that's not the issue.  The form is completed correctly and no information is missing. It's the form itself and someone at Proseries is working on it.

Hello IntuitAustin,

 

I, at one point, had entered foreign tax info into a return and linked to Copy 1 of Form 1116. I've since removed the foreign tax paid and all data on the 1116 Comp Wks, but am not able to delete the form from the return and the error you pictured is populating in my return. Any idea how to remove the 1116 Comp Wks?

 

Thanks for your help.

Hi Austin,

I am using TurboTax online and I have the same problem.

I think the form shows exactly what the problem is. If you see the "Date" column in the form it says to use "mm/dd/yy" format, whereas in the TurboTax online, I can not use this format and it has to be "mm/dd/yyyy".

 

"yy" vs "yyyy".

 

So I suspect this causing my e-file to get rejected with the error code "ForeignTaxesPaidOrAccruedDt".

 

Can you check and advise how to overcome this error for TuboTax online users?

Foreign country code from form isn’t converting for e-file. Under investigation and no work around at moment.  Will be fixed with an update as soon as possible.

Does anyone know if Intuit was notified and is fixing the Form 1116 reject problem?

This whole glitch regarding Form 1116 reject is getting to be a major problem for me.

My entries for the foreign tax credit are all clean and correct.

Can anyone help?

An investigation is currently underway for this error. If you call support and ask them to add you to the investigation you will get notified when a fix occurs.

I have the same issue. Client has a credit carryover. I've tried paid and accrued. I also tried adding a dollar in for the current year like we do on $0 income returns. I tried reentering everything from the worksheet. Keeps getting rejected. I'd rather wait for a solution than have the client mail in considering the delays for mail in refunds in the past year.

I reported this issue on 2/24.  This is the email we received after 2 hours on the phone with "tech support".

***

The unexpected behavior has been reported to our engineering team for review. 

It appears the Foreign Country code is not converting for e-file, taken from Form 1116 line I column A-C.

We do not have a workaround to offer at this time, a future update may be needed.

As soon as we learn more we will inform you by email with a resolution.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

I'm having this issue.  I've tried everything as pointed out in the thread to no avail.   Funny enough I had no problem back in early February with the same form.  Makes sense that it would be a country code or date incompatibility since it is affecting so many, and my F1116 is not complex.

I just spoke to Proseries. The last note on the case is from today and they are still working on it. No timeframe for resolution.

All of our rejected returns are clients who transferred from 2019 with carryover. We rebuilt one of the rejected returns as if it were new and submitted it. The return was accepted within minutes. We are going to try with a couple other files.  If anyone is willing to give this a try with a file or two and post their results, that would be helpful.

Mine is not a transferred return from prior year but does have carryover.   Their 2019 return was done by a different preparer. Interesting.  Thank you.

We got lucky with that one. The other 2 we tried were rejected. I'm going to call Proseries in the morning and see if I can send them a sanitized file of the one that went through. Maybe they can find a clue.
