IL e-filing error

TP employed in Illinois (IL).  One W-2 and IL and NY tax deducted.  Completed NY non-resident IT-203 form (only 3% allocated from wages computed and used for NY) and then the resident IL form.  IL return now indicating Not eligible for e-filing.  Reason provided as follows:    "Return cannot be e-filed when the sum of IL wages plus out of state wages on all w-2s does not equal total wages reported on IL schedule CR."

Checked all forms and wages identified on IL-CR directly from W-2 and correct.  Any help to troubleshoot appreciated.

I had this same problem with an IL/PA non-resident return.  Check your IL CR page 1.  Column A is the TOTAL of the W-2, (not just the Illinois portion) while Column B is the non-Illinois portion.  It is easy to put just the IL portion in column A.

Thank you for your answer, Ringers.  The only way I can put Ilinois portion in Column A is to override the auto populated field (W-2 amount - NY amount).  Once I do that I now get 2 errors; one for the overridden field and one for the original e-filing error.  It appears that the program is miscalculating.  Two calls to tech support did not seem to resolve the error.  

Could you expand on how you actually put the Illinois poruion in Column A?  Thank you for taking the time to respond.

Hi Trivedi,

 

When you prepared the Federal 1040, did you page to the bottom of the "info" screen and do the "non-resident" allocation?  That will let you split the W-2 into the two state amounts and pre-fill the proper columns on the IL CR form.  If your total split between the 2 states does not add up to the W-2 Box 1 total, you will see the error on the non-resident or part year resident allocation sheets.

 

I know these are available in Professional, but I am not sure they are available in Basic.

 

Good luck!
