  • Amended Frm 114 Marked for EF - The amended Form 114 is available for electronic filing but has not been transmitted.
  • Amended Frm 114 Received by Intuit - The amended Form 114 has been submitted to the Intuit Electronic Filing Center.
  • Amended Frm 114 Sent to FinCEN - The Intuit Electronic Filing Center has forwarded an amended Form 114 to the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) for processing.  This filing is outstanding and an acknowledgment has not yet been received.
  • Amended Frm 114 Accepted - The amended Form 114 has been accepted and has been successfully filed.  This is a final acknowledgment status and no further action is required.
  • Amended Frm 114 Conditional Accept - The amended Form 114 has been received by FinCEN but errors were identified.  Additional action is required and a second Amended Form 114 must be submitted after corrections are made.
  • Amended Frm 114 Rejected - The amended Form 114 has been rejected due to issues impacting the transmission of the return or due to formatting errors.
