Correcting Electronic Filing Errors

Electronic filing errors are always a first priority. TaxWise Online displays them in red text on the Diagnostics Report.

The red text is a link pointing to the form and entry that needs correction. When you click the link, TaxWise Online opens the form with the error below the Diagnostics Report so that the user has a chance to correct the entry.

After you correct each error, the return is ready for another Diagnostics run. After a successful Diagnostics Report, TaxWise Online clears the error.

You must correct all electronic filing errors prior to e-filing the return.

Warnings

Warnings identify possible problems, inconsistencies or suspicious information in the tax's return data.

Warnings can include:

If TaxWise Online displays a warning, you should verify that the information in the return is correct. Warnings do not disqualify a return from electronic filing.

Overridden Entries

TaxWise Online identifies overridden entries in the Diagnostics Report. To go to the form to verify the overridden entry,click the listing for that entry.

As you verify the overridden entries, make sure that they are absolutely necessary. Even though overridden entries do not disqualify a return from electronic filing, they may result in calculation errors.

Estimated Entries

TaxWise Online identifies incomplete estimated entries in the Diagnostics Report. To go to the form to verify any missing information, click the listing for that entry.

Although estimated entries do not disqualify a return from electronic filing, they may cause you to file incorrect information.

Re-running Diagnostics

You must run diagnostics after each error is corrected. When you have finished correcting errors and re-running diagnostics, the Mark as Ready to E-File box should be selected.
