Troubleshooting Lacerte diagnostic ref. 7930 - consolidated return functionality

by Lacerte Tax 2023 Updated 8 months ago

The following diagnostic is generated in the Corporate module:

e-file:  In order to electronically file a consolidated return, the Lacerte Consolidated Return functionality must be used. (ref. #7930)

This diagnostic typically occurs when input is entered on Screen 3, Consolidated Information and the Consolidator? box isn't checked on Screen 1, Client Information.

You can't check the consolidator box if you have states other than AZ, CA, CO, CT, FL, GA, ID, IL, KY, MA, MI (CIT), NM, NY, OR, VA, or WI in the state inventory of the consolidator. You must remove states not on the above list from the state inventory if you wish to check the consolidator box.

If you're trying to e-file a parent or subsidiary that isn't one of the accepted consolidated states (for example, TX) and you're getting this diagnostic, use the steps below to resolve it.

Follow these steps to resolve the diagnostic:

  1. Go to Screen 3, Consolidated Information.
  2. Select Consolidated Miscellaneous from the left navigation panel.
  3. Scroll down to the Corporations Included in Consolidated Return section.
  4. Make sure the checkbox labeled This corporation is included in consolidated return is unchecked.
    • If it isn't, uncheck it now.
  5. Go to Screen 4.1 Miscellaneous Information.
  6. Locate the Miscellaneous section.
  7. Make sure the checkbox labeled Consolidated return is unchecked.
    • If it isn't, uncheck it now.
