Diagnostic: 40455 - "Electronic Filing. Form 1120/1120F, current year estimated tax payments, is greater than zero but the first and final..." in an 1120 / 1120S return using interview forms.

Full Diagnostic Text

"Electronic Filing. Form 1120/1120F, current year estimated tax payments, is greater than zero but the first and final estimated payment has not been entered on Interview Form EF-4, Boxes 41 - 54. This is required input when estimate tax payments have been included on Form 1120."


Resolution

  1. Go to Interview Form EF-4 - Electronic Filing - Additional Information Continued.
    • In Boxes 41-54 - Federal Estimated Payments, complete applicable information related to Federal Form 1120, Line 33 payment(s) reported.
  2. Calculate the return.


Notes

  • This diagnostic issues because the IRS contacted CCH requiring the electronic file to include additional information when there is an amount on Form 1120, Line 33 - Total Payments, credits, and section 965 tax liability (Schedule J, Part III, line 23). Please use the fields mentioned in the diagnostic to clear.
  • If taxpayer paid the estimate via the IRS Same Day Taxpayer Worksheet, and they have a 15 digit confirmation number then select EFTPS, but if they do not have that number then they should select ACH payment.
  • This diagnostic will issue at the consolidated return. When it does, input the estimate inputs at the consolidated return, as described in the diagnostic text.
