Are you asking how to prepare a 1041? or how to Efile one that youve already prepared?
You need to have the 1041 module installed. Top menu bar Update > Select and Download new products.
Once the 1041 module is installed and youve prepared the return, you mark the EFile boxes on the federal information worksheet.
Are you using ProConnect Tax Online or ProSeries? If ProSeries you need Professional for a 1041, Basic wont do it.
If ProConnect Tax Online, I can't help with that, @George4Tacks might be able to direct you though.
@JWSwenson Once you determine the exact software you are using, I hope one of these will help you out.
If ProConnect Tax Online - Click the BLUE "Create Tax Return" button and answer the questions.
If ProSeries "Top menu bar Update > Select and Download new products." But I don't believe it works in ProSeries Basic https://proconnect.intuit.com/community/form-1040/help/comparing-lacerte-and-proseries-and-proconnec...https://proconnect.intuit.com/community/form-1040/help/comparing-lacerte-and-proseries-and-proconnec... but @Just-Lisa-Now- would have to confirm
If Turbo Tax we have been directed to say:
