Full Schema Text

The element 'IRS1116' in namespace 'http://www.irs.gov/efile' has invalid child element 'ForeignTaxCrCarrybackOrOverAmt' in namespace 'http://www.irs.gov/efile'. List of possible elements expected: 'ForeignRegulatedInvestmtCompCd, ForeignIncHighTaxedKickOutCd, ForeignTaxCreditSource, IncomeFromForeignSourceTypeCd, IncomeFromForeignSourceTxt, TotalForeignGrossIncomeAmt, AltBasisCompensationSourceInd, TotalDeductionOrLossAmt, NetForeignTaxableIncomeLossAmt, ForeignTaxesPaidCreditInd, ForeignTaxesAccruedCreditInd' in namespace 'http://www.irs.gov/efile'.

Resolution

If the 1116 is only produced for carryover purposes, the foreign country codes must still be entered.
  1. Go to the Credits > 1116 - Foreign Tax Credit worksheet.
  2. Select Section 1 - General. 
    • In the grid for Line 4, enter the Foreign country code - Required.
    • In the grid for Line 11, enter the following:
      • Foreign country code - Required.
      • Income Type.
      • Date Paid.
  3. Calculate the return.
NOTE: You have to do this for every occurrence of the worksheet section. If you have HTKO represented on the government Form 1116, we add a second occurrence of the worksheet and it needs the same data keyed in as well.

A diagnostic will be added on a future release.
