The following diagnostic is generating:

Form 8865 must be attached to the return to qualify for electronic filing. Please file this return as a conventional paper return.


Form 8865 data must be included in the e-file but Lacerte does not support this. The IRS system can't read the data from a PDF, so attaching the form to the return this way will not satisfy the schema, and Lacerte can't generate the form, so the return must be filed as a conventional paper return. If the form is required, there is no way around this. If the form is not needed remove the entry from Screen 3.1 > Foreign Operations of U.S. Corporations (Schedule N) > Number of Forms 8865 attached
