Resolving NY amended e-file error - Unable to splice payload

SOLVEDby IntuitLacerte TaxUpdated October 12, 2021

When trying to send an amended New York fiduciary return that contains a PDF attachment for IT-205 Amended Explanation Document, a submission failure generates when processing the return for e-file:

"Submission Failure: We are having difficulty recognizing the data you are sending. Please try again. - 601ERRV:?, PLD_01 - ?:? - Unable to splice payload. Indicated length greater than actual length."

This error can happen when the attachment is set to e-file with the federal return when it isn't needed.

Follow these steps to resolve this error:

  1. Go to Screen 2.2, Electronic Filing.
  2. Select the PDF Attachment button.
  3. On the Send PDF attachment with federal return, check No.
  4. Try to e-file again.
