Multiple Form 8853

Level 2

Both taxpayer and spouse each have a LTC policy and received 1099-LTC this year.  Can we really not electronically file their returns?  I am getting a diagnostic but it doesn't make sense that I wouldn't be able to electronically submit it.

What does the Diagnostic say?

I am getting the same error.  

Diagnostic says:

#875 A maximum of one form 8853 is allowed for e-file.

#3727 Form 8853: More than one LTC is not allowed for E-file.  Must be filed as a paper return.

Is there any solution that works to e-file or do we just have to paper file?  I ended paper filing last year.

I did speak to Lacerte on this yesterday and there is no work around.  Paper filing is the only option.

this sucks for 2020 tax season and COVID
