Update – IRS Rejects F1040-439 and F1040-440

The IRS has issued guidance on rejects F1040-439, F1040-440, F1040NR-439 and F1040NR-440.

Due to rounding, the rejects were applied to some returns containing the Qualified Business Income Deduction. The IRS is implementing a fix to allow for a $1 rounding variance and hopes to have it implemented on 1/20/2019. If they are unable to release the fix by 1/20/2019, it should be implemented on 1/27/2019, prior to the official start of e-File.

If TaxSlayer Pro is able to resend the returns containing these rejects, we will re-transmit them and release a message in the message center letting you know.

If TaxSlayer Pro is not able to resend the returns containing these rejects, we will release a message in the message center letting you know that you will need to re-transmit the returns.
