How to resolve Lacerte diagnostic ref. 7520

by Lacerte Tax 2023 Updated 7 months ago

This article will help you resolve Lacerte diagnostic ref. 7520 which states:

  • Returns with penalties and interest cannot be filed electronically. You must file this return as a conventional paper return.

The message is triggered if 1's are entered in the Late Penalty and Interest input fields on screen 11.

To resolve this diagnostic

  • To show the estimated penalties on Form 1120, you must paper file the return.
  • To show the estimated penalties in the client letter so your client is notified of amounts to be paid and can still e-file:
    1. Print the client letter and client copy of the return.
    2. Go to Screen 11, Penalties & Interest (2220).
    3. Click the Late Return Penalty and Interest section on the left.
    4. Remove the 1= Automatic from Lines Interest,  Late filing, or Late payment.

Once the diagnostic has cleared, the return can be e-filed.
