When working on an Individual return where states may share a reciprocity agreement, you may get the following diagnostic:
- The (State Name) return has not been printed due to a reciprocal agreement with (Resident State). Because only wages were earned in (State Name), no tax return is required (ref. #12470)
This diagnostic will generate for any resident state with a reciprocal agreement, where the wages were only earned in the non-resident state.
The diagnostic is not e-file critical. It will not prevent the return from being e-filed.
For example, if a return has both MI and IL as states, and the client is marked as a full year resident of IL in Screen 1, Client Information, and only IA or MI wages are entered in Screen 10, Wages, Salaries, Tips, then the diagnostic will appear explaining why the IA / MI return was not generated.
