The good news is I transmitted my first return on Tuesday and it cleared yesterday.  It was complicated - 1 W-2.  I may have pointed out some issues with Minnesota itemized deductions the other day, so I put that return on hold and moved on to the next return in the hopper which is a family member with 3 W-2s and some student loan interest.  I transmitted that on Tuesday along with the return that subsequently cleared.  The federal cleared along with the other return, but the MN return was still sitting in the dugout at Intuit as of last night.  So I thought I would check its status and see if it made it out of the dugout this evening.  After I click the check for acknowledgements button, I see a window popping up telling me that the EF center has identified my EFIN as processing one or more MN returns that were rejected.  It goes on to explain that it was rejected because there was an issue on the return related to the MN Child Tax Credit.  Huh?  The return was for a single guy with no kids which kinda means there wasn't any child tax credit. 

So I guess the one thing I learned today is, I am going to have to scale back my client base to single clients with no kids and one W-2.  The only trouble is, the only client I have fitting that description has already had their return done.  Anybody have any clients that fit that description that they would be interested in referring in my direction?  I'll pay a referral fee.

Transmitting returns?  That's a bold move this early in tax season.

It certainly is for this place.

Well that sucks.  You would think that  a simple return could make it through with no problems.

I kinda thought so, but I blame the anvils for my thinking :expressionless::expressionless:

Maybe the program adds a hidden Child Tax Credit instead of Form M1SA.

I've only file a few returns so far, but mine have been okay.

Is this a good place to mention that the programming department has a problem with numbers?  The Minnesota version of the K-1 on Sub S returns is if off by 2 decimal places.   So Intuit has deemed a sole shareholder to own 10,000% of his business.  I haven't done any individual returns for any of my 1120S owners, but I'm hoping those extra percents don't kick them into a higher tax bracket.  :cry::cry:

Math has never been Intuit's strong point.

As a side note, I'm thinking TurdoTax also had an issue with child tax credits.  I was out of the office today and an employee for one of my clients mentioned that he transmitted his TurdoTax return on Tuesday and received a message that Minnesota wasn't accepting any returns at that time.

Because they use the same "engine", ProSeries and TurdoTax almost always have the same errors.  If one is broken, so is the other.

So I came in this morning and my "child credit" return is now accepted --------------- without any changes being done to the return.  I think they just grabbed any MN returns with any type of tax credit and threw them in a hold pile to sort out later.
