Hi Folks,

 

Married filing separate state returns... I keep getting an error message that another return is schedule to efile with same social security number even though I went back into PS and changed the ss numbers... Help? How do I take the original Joint federal return and e file separate state reurns please.

 

Thanks, rob j.

Once Fed has been accepted, print out the acknowledgement then open the file and uncheck the EF boxes on the fed info worksheet,  then save and exit, that should take the MFJ return out of EFCenter and get rid of the duplicate SSN message.

Hi Lisa,

 

Did as instructed; still getting error message another return is marked for electronic filing when I try to file the state returns. I am re-starting the program to see if somehow technology Gods will intervene...

 

Thank you so far!

 

warmly, rob

When you opened the fed return and unchecked the EF boxes, did you switch over to the state return then save and exit?  I think I forgot to put that last part in my original post, sorry.
