Error Message on Address for Additional w2g Info for Efile

Mike DB
Level 2

The address that is put in for the tax client is coming up as an error when I check the box to bring in the address from the information worksheet or type it in. The error says " Form W-2G Worksheet - Winner 1 Address  - both foreign and domestic address elements are present. Please check all winner fields for accuracy." However, the address does not have any foreign elements in it.. Note the same address is used for winner 2 and 3 with no issues. What can I do to eliminate this error message.

I'm having the exact same problem on multiple clients.  My work around is deleting all Payor 1 and creating a new page but starting on column two.
