Mandatory efile Form 990-T

cmel
Level 2

Is anyone else having issues efiling a 2020 Form 990-T for a profit sharing plan - 401(a) organization? When attempting to convert and transmit, I receive the message "Form 990-T: Tax-Exempt Orgs: Returns that do not qualify as a 501(c), 4947(a)(1) Trust or 527 Organization are ineligible to file electronically. Return conversion failed.

If I uncheck the box for efiling on the information worksheet, the program shows an error, and says that the return must be efiled.

It appears that IRS is requiring all 990-T returns due on or after April 15, 2021 to be filed electronically and will not accept paper returns.

I spent 2+ hours with tech support yesterday and they were unable to figure out what the issue was.

Thanks for posting this... Others have brought this up in other posts.. I hope Pro Series is reading this and correct all of these matters because these returns are going to be due May 15th for calendar year entities..... Come on now get this stuff fixed... Just my opinion

There was an update to 990 program today.  I hoped that it would take care of my problem with efiling the 990T, but it didn't.  The program still will not convert 990T for the reasons stated in original post.

How do we get the attention of ProSeries to fix this problem?

👍 cmel, thank you very much for the information. I believe that Pro Series monitors posts on this forum, so hopefully someone will read this and take care of this matter. Even if they do not read this it is their job to correct these issues in my opinion. We paid a lot of money for this software and we should not have to put up with this. I hope they correct these issues soon since the return or extension is due as you said May 15th. .....COME ON INTUIT, TAKE CARE OF THIS MATTER... just my opinion...

So does Bigfoot ------ he is probably more likely to resolve the issue.

@cmel just an update... It still will not let me file a 990 T extension for a regular 501c entity, but it will let me e-file the actual 990T return supposedly... The 990 return is no problem either with the return or with the extension but there appears to be a problem on the 990-t extension part... Hope Pro Series update this soon since extension is due May 15th for calendar-yearcalendar year entities

Thank you qb... I am busy right now trying to finish up the 2020 calendar year 990 / 990-t entities... Instead of waiting for the 990-t extension to be available for e-filing, I figured I would just finish the actual returns before the due date and e-file them... hopefully next year they will have the 990-t extension available for e-filing, if I am still doing this... Thanks again qb

Still cannot file the 990-T. Posted a screenshot.

ProSeries please review this problem.

@cmel  I'm curious. Why does the profit sharing plan need to file a 990-T?

"ProSeries please review this problem."

You are asking Peer Users; we already tried to use the "callout" function for

@IntuitAustin 

who could share this with the staff. Right here, this is not Customer Support; this is Peer Users.

"I spent 2+ hours with tech support yesterday and they were unable to figure out what the issue was."

You might try calling them, again.

@IRonMaN 👍 I gave up trying to call long time ago unless it is absolutely necessary... I've learned more on this forum with tax professionals like you Iron Man and others that I could ever learn anywhere else...

But sometimes we don't have a clue and need a little insight from Intuit.  It tends to perturb me just a bit, when nobody from Intuit will at least acknowledge a cry for help.  It's amazing that we seem to be able to take time out of our day to help other folks --------------- saving how many calls to support -------- but it seems so difficult for someone from Intuit to step up to the plate from time to time.  It really sucks.

@IRonMaN @sjrcpa @qbteachmt you three and others like Lisa should receive your software at no fee considering the number of people that you help which relieves pressure from Intuit handling the issues/questions... just my opinion👍🤓🐕

Thanks. Intuit does not agree with you about FREE software.

FREE SOFTWARE

FREE BEER

FREE MUMBAI DANCING GIRLS

FREE STUPID MORONS

 

Just trying to figure out which words get their attention since normal paging doesn't seem to work.

"Intuit does not agree with you about FREE software."

Just earlier today, I was digging around for an "ethernet-to-USB WiFi doohickey" and came across my drawer with some of the free Intuit doohickeys they sent me over the years, such as USB chargers and converter cable-packs and an Intuit memory stick (or 3) and even a QB pen. I have no idea what happened to the Intuit tote bag or T Shirt.

Have you tried  - Beetlejuice  Beetlejuice  Beetlejuice    ?      Maybe that will summon up some PS support

Thanks. There was an update to 990T today. Did not solve the problem.

Honestly, I don't have the time right now to keep calling them.  Luckily, I was able to get an acquaintance using Lacerte to get an extension, since I was also not able to do an extension electronically.  I will get really worried in October....

cmel

And just to make the record clear.  In this situation, the return was due on 4/15, not 5/15 as it is for most. After the acquaintance was able to get the extension, I asked her to see if she could file the 990T, and she was also not able to do that.  So at this point, I feel screwed.

A little help on e-filing 990Ts and their extensions?

I'll get the call in a little earlier today.

Maybe their employment contracts ended on April 15th so there is no longer any support !!!  Yikes.

They have posted since April 15th, so they are still around.  Maybe our contracts need to end and we stop posting here.
